[ARCHIVED] Readings on Racial Justice Book Club

Words book club spelled out with wooden letters with other wooden letters jumbled around and behind

This month we will be discussing The Sum of Us: what racism costs everyone and how we can prosper together by Heather McGhee. This nonfiction narrative explores the ways racism has been weaponized to the detriment of everyone, and ways we can move past these self-imposed limitations as a nation by working together instead of competing.                 

The Racial Justice Book Club meets on the second Tuesday of each month at 5 pm via Zoom.  Please register so we can email you the link to join the book club on May 10 at 5 pm.

The June 2022 selection is The Book of Lost Friends by Lisa Wingate and the book club meeting is on June 14.

All Library programs are free and open to the public. Call the Library at 615-595-1243 or email if you have questions or want to cancel a registration.
