Racial Justice Book Discussion @ Russell Library
Mar 7 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Racial Justice Book Discussion @ Russell Library | Middletown | Connecticut | United States

This book group will be meeting on the first Tuesday of each month. On March 7th, we will discuss Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates. As one reviewer said, “This the sort of book you could pick apart sentence by sentence for a year and at the end of that year just shake your head in despair. What Coates has done…is passionately and profoundly lay out the sad state of race relations in this country. Coates strings words together in a most elegant tapestry that forces the reader to think carefully and internalize the grim realities of life as a victim of racism in this country. Read so that ye may weep and know the truth.”
Copies of Between the World and Me will be available at the check-out desk. For more information, contact Christy Billings by emailing cbillings@russelllibrary.org or by calling 860 347-2528 Ext. 122.
This book club is open to anyone and will meet regularly with a new book each month. No registration is necessary. Copies of the next book, Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi, will be available on March 28th for the April 25th meeting.
