All are welcome to join us for a new book club series for 2021 alternating between nonfiction and fiction titles. The first community read and virtual discussion will discuss Waking Up White by Debbie Irving. An eye-opener for many, this book chronicles the author’s sometimes cringe-worthy struggle to understand racism and racial tensions with prompts on how readers can explore their own racialized ideas.
You need not commit to attending discussions of all books to participate in one. However, future book picks include The Night Watchman by Louise Erdrich and How to Be an Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi. Audiobooks, e-books, and printed copies may be found at your local library, Buttonwood Books and Toys in Cohasset, at www.bookshop.org in support of local bookstores, or from your preferred bookseller.
Registration is now closed for this event.
