DC Reads is a DC Public Library literacy program that promotes reading for pleasure by having citywide celebrations for teens and adults that focus on one book. This year we will be reading Frederick Douglass in Washington, D.C.: The Lion of Anacostia. Journalist John Muller explores the last 18 years of Frederick Douglass’ life in Washington DC. In what has been called "lively, pithy, humorous, and, by turns, grave and unrelenting" by author Mark H. Metcalf, this look at the incredible journey of Frederick Douglass from slave to famous orator is unlike any biography of Frederick Douglass you have picked up before.
Come join us at the Georgetown Neighborhood Library on Wednesday, November 6th at 7:30 p.m. for a lively discussion of this book! Drop by the library anytime before to pick up your copy at our DC Reads display!
