6:00 p.m. Arcata Library, RADA Summer One Read, The Warmth of Other Suns

Thursday, June 28, 2018

R.A.D.A. stands for 'Reading. Awareness. Dialogue. Action'. Join this One Book summer book group that, in three meetings over the summer, undertakes a thoughtful reading of The Warmth of Other Suns by Isabel WIlkerson. This is a prize-winning, much praised history of the Great Migration, when hundreds of thousands of African Americans journeyed to northern states that had previously had only tiny Black populations. RADA Book Group highlights issues impacting society, such as race and immigration, in a safe space where people can talk openly with respect and compassion in hopes of raising social consciousness; exchanging ideas, understanding, and experiences; and discussing actions individuals and communities can take to address problems.
