Event Details

Join us once a month to discuss books by underrepresented authors. Our goal is to amplify these voices and experiences while discussing social issues in the context of fiction and non-fiction books.

'There's really no such thing as the 'voiceless.' There are only the deliberately silenced, or the preferably unheard." -Arundhati Roy

Our November selection is Love in Color: Mythical Tales from Around the World, Retold by Bolu Babalola. Copies will be available for pick-up at the Franklin Ave Library Help Desk starting January 13th.
