Monday Women’s Book Group – Meets the first and third Mondays at 4pm on Zoom

November 2 & 16 at 4:00pm – The Women’s Monday book group has selected Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates as our book for November.  Between the World and Me is written as a letter to the author’s teenage son about the feelings, symbolism, and realities associated with being Black in the United States. Coates recapitulates American history and explains to his son the “racist violence that has been woven into American culture.”  The group will meet on November 2nd and 16th from 4:00-5:30 via Zoom to discuss Between the World and Me.  Please contact Penny Cragun ( if you would like to join us.
