The Fire Next Time by James Baldwin — Two letters & 128 pages
LWV PWM — DEI Book Club
June 16 @ 7:30pm Zoom —
The Fire Next Door by James Baldwin
Our goal for our League’s DEI Book Club:
to initiate discourse on difficult topics to increase member awareness and to increase member skills in having these conversations.
The LWV US prioritized Diversity, Equity, Inclusion (DEI) initiatives in 2018 for the national and all state leagues.* Among a number of initiatives, our local league has run book club discussions since December 2020.
Going forward, meetings will be held at 7:30pm by Zoom on the second Wednesday of each month:
June 16 —The Fire Next Time, James Baldwin (128 pgs.) — 2 letters (note date shift because of NYS Convention)
July 14 —The Man Who Lived Underground, Richard Wright (242 pgs) — a novel
