Schedule, Spring 2020

Two library staff groups read and discussed this book during Spring 2020. The Librarians of Color group began their discussion series in early January 2020, discussing one chapter per meeting. In mid-March, a second group of library staff began their discussion series, sponsored by the library's DEI Committee, and discussing 4 chapters per meeting. Due to COVID-19 and social distancing efforts that began in mid-March, the first group completed their series online, and the second group took place entirely online.
