Just the Facts

February 16, 2017 @ 6:30 pm

For their February book, “Just the Facts” Nonfiction Book Discussion Group will be reading Between the World and Me by Ta-Nahisi Coates. In a series of essays, written as a letter to his son, Coates confronts the question of race in America and how it has shaped American history, many times at the cost of Black lives. In a book that reminds us of James Baldwin’s The Fire Next Time, Coates poignantly asks and attempts to answer the difficult questions that plague modern society. We will discuss this powerful book on Thursday, February 16 at 6:30 pm.
