Our Racial Equity Book Club has been renamed “Social Awareness Book Club.” This Mason County District Library book club group is open to everyone!

The next meeting is Wednesday, June 28th, 10:30 a.m. in Ludington. The book for June is “The New Jim Crow” by Michelle Alexander.

“Alarming, provocative and convincing,” says Kirkus Review.

“Sometimes a book comes along and, after it is absorbed into the culture, we cannot see ourselves again in quite the same way” – The New Yorker.

“First-time drug offenders can face 10 years imprisonment; thousands of black Americans, following plea-bargaining, languish in jail for crimes they did not commit because of fears of these mandatory sentences. On release, they enter a parallel shadow society, where employment opportunities disappear, creating ‘a closed circuit of marginality’.” – The Guardian

Join in-person at the Ludington Library, or by Zoom.

Meetings of the SABC are on the fourth Wednesdays of the month at 10:30 a.m. You can attend in-person or virtually.

Email Thomas Trahey at ttrahey@mcdlibrary.org for more information and to pre-order a copy of the next book.
