What we're about

We meet the last Thursday of every month. Members of this monthly book club will read books across genres that explore issues of race, culture, gender, disability and other forms of "othering" in America as a means of better understanding ourselves, our history and our greater Milwaukee community. If you're interested in experiencing other perspectives, exploring and challenging your own and society's views, and engaging in respectful dialogue we invite you to join the conversation!
