July Book Discussion
The Kilbourn Public Library Book Discussion Group is reading The Warmth of Other Suns: the Epic Story of America's Great Migration by Isabel Wiklerson for the July selection.
In this beautifully written masterwork, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Isabel Wilkerson chronicles one of the great untold sotries of American history: the decades-long migration of black citizens who fled the South for northern and western cities, in search of a better life. From 1915 to 1970, this exodus of almost six million people changed the face of America.
The book club will be meeting on Monday, July 28 at 6:30 p.m. and Wednesday, July 30 at 1:30 p.m. to discuss this thought provoking book.
Copies of the book are available at the library and on the Kilbourn Public Library Bookmobile. Pick up a copy to read and then join us at the library for one of the meetings. We expect ot have an interesting discussion, and new voices are always welcome!
