Waking Up White (2 sessions)


Oct. 29 4 - 5:30 pm: In person in the library’s gazebo

Please dress in very warm layers, depending on weather report, and/or bring a blanket and warm drink. In the shade, a late October afternoon can turn quite chilly!

This session will focus on the first five sections of the book, up to and including the section “25 years of Tossing and Turning,” and will also allow time for the group to get to know each other.


Nov. 5 6 - 7:30 pm: Over Zoom

Email newgloucesterlibrary@gmail.com to receive the Zoom link for that day

This session will focus on the last three sections of the book, but will also reflect on the book as a whole.
