We will discuss Ijeoma Oluo's book, So You Want To Talk About Race. Oluo guides readers of all races through subjects ranging from intersectionality and affirmative action to "model minorities" in an attempt to make the seemingly impossible possible: honest conversations about race and racism, and how they infect almost every aspect of American life. The discussion will happen on Zoom and will be led by local educator Josh Frank.
You can get the book from the library here or an online bookstore. Because this is a very popular book, we will have two sessions with 20 participants each on the three dates.
Times: Morning session at 9:15-11 AM and an afternoon session at 2 -3:45 PM.
To register, please email JP Branch librarian Laura Pattison at email@example.com. Please write "Ijeoma Oluo Book Discussion" in the subject line when you RSVP.
• You only need to register once for all three dates, even if you think you might miss a date.
• Please choose the morning or afternoon time, and you will be registered for that same time for each date.
• Laura will register the first 40 people, 20 each for the morning and afternoon groups. You will get an email if you are registered. If you do not get an email from Laura, please assume that you are not registered.
This discussion is co-sponsored by the Friends of the JP Branch Library.
