Diversity Reading Group

Discussing "The Great Believers" by Rebecca Makkai on Tuesday, great believers coverFebruary 25 from 12-1 PM. Please RSVP here. Location TBD.

"Rebecca Makkai’s The Great Believers is a page turner... among the first novels to chronicle the AIDS epidemic from its initial outbreak to the present—among the first to convey the terrors and tragedies of the epidemic’s early years as well as its course and repercussions...An absorbing and emotionally riveting story about what it’s like to live during times of crisis." —The New York Times Book Review


MLK 2020 theme and date has been annouced!  The theme for the 2020 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Celebration is Rise Together! In times of change, struggles, anger, oppression and loss of national unity, it is easy to lose hope and optimism. As I listen to the news, talk to family, friends and colleagues, I sense a loss of optimism. Difficult times, while frightening and exhausting, are not the times to lose hope and optimism. I suggest they are the times to inspire each other to reach out to our neighbors, even those we disagree with, and push for positive change. I suggest during the days of celebrating the life and works of Dr. King and the millions who worked with him, that we pull each other up, push each other along, and when needed, carry each other to a place of compassion, kindness, equity and peace. It is only in our willingness to help all others rise that we will rise ourselves. We hope you will join us at some of the wonderful programs taking shape now for the 2020 Celebration. As we come together in January and throughout the year, let us Rise Together as a community, a nation, a world.  Click here for more information.
