April Book Discussion Group

April 4 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

“How The Word Is Passed: A Reckoning with the History of Slavery Across America” was selected as the Washtenaw Reads book of 2024.  Clint Smith, the author, guides the reader on a tour of seven national “monuments and landmarks – those that are honest about the past and those that are not – that offers an intergenerational story of how slavery has been central in shaping our nation’s collective history and ourselves.”  The book reads a bit like a travelogue, with interviews with both other visitors and staff at each site.

All are welcome to join the discussion of this compelling, insightful, and often revealing book.  If you are interested in attending you can sign up here.  Questions?  Email Lisa Gray-Lion at lgraylion@gmail.com
