The Power of Read Woke


School Library Journal and Scholastic named Cicely Lewis the 2020 School Librarian of the Year. Cicely is a school librarian at Meadowcreek High School in Norcross, Georgia and the founder of Read Woke, an initiative encouraging students to read books that challenge a social norm or the status quo, give a voice to the voiceless, have a protagonist from an underrepresented or oppressed group, or provide information about a group that has been disenfranchised. She visits districts nationwide to stress the importance of libraries and certified librarians in every school.
