Description

This year, the MLK Day book club reading selection is "Real American: A Memoir" by Julie Lythcott-Haims. This book tells the story of how race informs identity and feelings of belonging in the United States. Who is a "real American?" Lythcott-Haims asks, and who gets to decide? What is it like growing up in a country that in many ways views you as an outsider? Hailed as " A compelling, incisive and thoughtful examination of race, origin and what it means to be called an American" by 2018 commencement speaker Bryan Stevenson, Real American is a must read for those seeking to better understand issues of race and identity in this country.

Those who particiapte in the bookclub will join in a discussion on MLK Day, January 21, 2019. Details to follow of location and time.
