Book Club

What Is This? In an effort to learn and deepen my knowledge of race and race issues in the United States, I decided to do more reading on the topic. When a colleague expressed interest in doing the same, we teamed up and decided to facilitate a discussion on Michelle Alexander’s The New Jim Crow. We wound up having two meaningful conversations about it. Next we read How to Be an Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi and then Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates. We felt the next logical step was to go back in time a bit and get acquainted with James Baldwin. Then we were in the mood for an autobiography, so we picked I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou.

What Is the Book? This meeting will be more about fun and housekeeping. We’ll take a break from discussing just one book, but will each come to the meeting with five suggestions for future books to read. In January 2021 we’ll resume our normal book per month.

What If I Missed Earlier Meetings? It doesn’t matter. We welcome more voices and points of view.

About the Facilitators: Nancy Colasurdo is a life coach and an award-winning blogger and journalist and Anne Bonfiglio is an attorney and counselor at law at Bonfiglio Family Law.

Details: Friday, Dec. 11, 7:30-9 p.m. ET via Zoom. If interested in being on the list of participants, email Nancy at nancy.colasurdo@gmail.com.
