Daytime Book Club for Men and Women – meets the third Thursday of each month from 10am until noon.
Thursday, January 21 at 10am
We will be reading The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek, by Kim Michele Richardson. The novel has two themes based on history. The first is the racial injustice of the blue people of Kentucky. The main character’s occupation is based on librarians on horseback in Appalachia, part of Roosevelt’s Great Depression Kentucky Pack Horse Library Project. The Thursday Morning Book Group will zoom on January 21. For more information contact Alice Marks at email@example.com.
Monday Women’s Book Group – Meets the first and third Mondays at 4pm on Zoom
January 4 & 18 at 4:00pm via Zoom
In January we will continue to read and discuss Caste: The Origins of Our Discontent by Isabel Wilkerson. The author posits that racism is an insufficient term for the systemic oppression of Black people in America. Instead, she prefers to refer to America as having a “caste” system. Please contact Penny Cragun (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like to join us.
