First Racial Equity Book Club Meeting is May 1

Please join us at the first Racial Equity Committee Book Club on Wednesday, May 1, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the Hazel Wolf Library. We will be discussing Ijeoma Oluo’s “So You Want to Talk About Race.” We hope that parents, grandparents, guardians, staff and teachers will come to talk about the book. The format will be a general discussion, mildly facilitated just to keep things moving smoothly. There will be questions for the group to consider, and we look at this as a conversation. (If you haven’t finished the book by May 1, please still join us. No quiz, no pressure.)

We do not at present have child care available. If that changes, we will let you know.
