Program Description

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 May selection is A Council of Dolls by Mona Susan Power. Copies will be available for pick-up at the Franklin Ave Library Help Desk starting April 12th.
