Online via Zoom

We will be reading James Baldwin's The Fire Next Time for our nonfiction read this month! Originally published in 1963, The Fire Next Time was a call to dismantle the legacy of racism in the U.S. and a herald of the Civil Rights Movement. Fifty-seven years later, it is as urgent and vital a message as it has ever been. We hope you can join us on August 27th at 6pm on Zoom. Email Michelle at if you would like to receive an invitiation to book club meetings!

"Basically the finest essay I’ve ever read. . . . Baldwin refused to hold anyone’s hand. He was both direct and beautiful all at once. He did not seem to write to convince you. He wrote beyond you.” --Ta-Nehisi Coates
