Let's Talk About Race Book Discussion

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
FRANKFORT PUBLIC LIBRARY DISTRICT
East Courtyard
To understand racism in its many forms, we have to understand our own cultures (even if you only see yourself as American), how we deal with race as a society, and the history behind what race means today.

This month, we discuss We Have Always Been Here by Samra Habib. This autobiography is about a queer Muslim woman who searches for the language to express her truest self, making peace with her sexuality, her family, and Islam. Along the way, she learns that the facets of her identity aren't as incompatible as she was led to believe, and that her people had always been there-the world just wasn't ready for them yet.

Copies of the book are available at the Circulation Desk one month before the meeting date. Register online or call 815-534-6173.
