The Warmth of Other Suns, Isabel Wilkerson
Lynn Garelick and Adrienne Reedy follow up their earlier discussion of Isabel Wilkerson’s Caste with Wilkerson’s other bestseller, The Warmth of Other Suns: The Epic Story of America’s Great Migration.

All: We will be hunting for new discussion books and new volunteers for 2022. Step up! If you’ve read a book that will attract the community and for which you want to lead a discussion, let me know which one, why it matters and why the library might be interested. The library — Perrot or Greenwich — ultimately decides which discussions to schedule. Look forward to hearing from you! ~~ Diane Morello
