Open for Discussion is a drop-in book discussion group. The group focuses on expanding reading horizons through thought-provoking books. All are welcome to come and converse. Title of the month: Caste: The Origins of our Discontent by Isabel Wilkerson. The Pulitzer Prize-winning, bestselling author of The Warmth of Other Suns examines the unspoken caste system that has shaped America and shows how our lives today are still defined by a hierarchy of human divisions. In this brilliant book, Isabel Wilkerson gives us a masterful portrait of an unseen phenomenon in America as she explores, through an immersive, deeply researched narrative and stories about real people, how America today and throughout its history has been shaped by a hidden caste system, a rigid hierarchy of human rankings.
Copies of the book will be available at the Adult Information Desk about four weeks in advance while supplies last.
