Virtual Book Club
Registration is now open for our virtual book club cohort! The text for October is This Book is Anti-Racist* by Tiffany Jewell. In November you can choose to continue with the same group from the October study to dive into Robin DiAngelo’s text, White Fragility. Registration is $15 for This Book is Anti-Racist (the fee includes the book). If you want to register to discuss both texts, the fee is $25 (fee includes the texts). You can register later for the November study!
We need a minimum of 6 registrants to run the book club; we’ll cap the participant list at 15. After you register, you’ll receive an email with more information about book pick-up, a reading calendar, and Zoom access.
When: October 1, 8, 15, 22, 29 from 8-9 PM via Zoom and November 10, 17, 24, Dec. 1, Dec. 8 from 8-9 PM via Zoom
