July's book is Ordinary Resurrections: Children in the Years of Hope by Jonathan Kozol. According to Education World editor Lois Lewis, "Kozol offers a moving glimpse into the everyday lives of young children growing up in the South Bronx area of New York City." The Kangaku Book Club encourages learning to promote social justice. Its goal is to create a community of learning in the search for justice and truth. The group seeks to learn about local, national and international issues through books and through each other. Each month, they will choose a book related to various themes such as globalization, poverty, politics, education equity, the death penalty, women's issues, indigenous rights and struggle, etc.
