The Book of Karen

Activities for Reactionary Adults

Written by Karen K. Klaren

Illustrated by Karen Janson

Mazes Activities Games And more . . . !

Karen and Kevin demand a lot these days. From speaking to a manager to seeing birth certificates to requiring permits to sell lemonade, there’s no 911 call they won’t make, no social norm nor grace today’s put-upon white person won’t upend, in an effort to exercise and maintain their privilege.

The Book of Karen: Activities for Reactionary Adults demands only one thing: you laugh at them.

Filled with the kinds of stickers, brain teasers, word searches, crossword puzzles, riddles, connect-the-dots, crafts, fill-in-the-blanks, and prompts found in any traditional adult activity book, The Book of Karen subverts and parodies the genre by highlighting the horrible behaviors of the entitled women and men whose videoed and memed behaviors would be comical were they not so condemnable.

As much an activity book as as it is as call to action, The Book of Karen contains a comprehensive and useful list of anti-Karen nonprofits, especially those focusing on social justice, voting rights, pay equity, LGBTQIA rights, immigration, hunger and food instability, disability services, and victim’s rights to raise awareness and for readers to support, learn more about, and work with to fight the status quo.

A portion of the proceeds from The Book of Karen will directly go to benefit The Equal Justice Initiative, a non-profit committee working to end mass incarceration and excessive punishment, challenging racial and economic injustice, and protecting the basic human rights for the most vulnerable Americans.
