Event description

Description

Join the Schomburg Center and Countee Cullen Library as we launch the Schomburg Reading Circle - our new community book club - with a conversation on Looking for Lorraine: The Radiant and Radical Life of Lorraine Hansberry by Imani Perry.

Come prepared to delve deeper into the book's themes and topics, and to discuss what intrigued you most about the author's work with your fellow Schomburg Reading Circle members.

Schomburg Reading Circle books are available for purchase in the Schomburg Shop, and can be checked out at your local NYPL branch. Reserve your copy of Looking for Lorraine in the NYPL catalog.

Register to hear Imani Perry in conversation at the Schomburg on September 20.



FIRST COME, FIRST SEATED

Registered guests are given priority check-in 15 to 30 minutes before start time. After the event starts all registered seats are released regardless of registration, so we recommend that you arrive early.
