New members are invited to the third meeting of the Blue Hill Public Library’s monthly (fall to spring) book group, “Readings on Race”, on Saturday May 12th from 2:00 to 4:00 PM. The group will be discussing the book So You Want to Talk about Race, by Ijeoma Oluo. Copies of the book will be available to check out in advance at the library.
In this breakout book, Ijeoma Oluo explores the complex reality of today’s racial landscape–from white privilege and police brutality to systemic discrimination and the Black Lives Matter movement–offering straightforward clarity that readers need in order to contribute to the dismantling of the racial divide.
Surry resident Kate Mrozicki will facilitate the group. Kate is a farmer who believes in the power of difficult conversations to change our reality. She got to practice those conversations during years of working for The Food Project in Boston and now raising small children in Surry. This event is free and everyone is welcome. For more information call the library at 374-5515.
