IU Books & Beyond is a collaborative leadership development project that increases critical literacy skills, addresses the Rwandan “book famine”, and develops models for cross-cultural teaching and learning. Indiana University students partner with local Bloomington elementary school students to write stories which are compiled with stories written by Rwandan elementary school students into the anthology The World is Our Home. Members of this organization are involved in mentoring elementary school students to write stories, editing and publishing the anthology, fundraising, event-planning, and increasing awareness of Rwandan culture on campus.
IU Books & Beyond is a University Student Organization.
Come meet us at the IU Virtual Involvement Fair on Thursday, August 27 between 4-7pm. You can join our Zoom meeting through the Virtual Involvement Fair event on BeInvolved.
