July Book Discussion

http://isabelwilkerson.com/wp-content/themes/isabel/images/cover_book.png


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!
If you can't make it to the book club meeting in person you can join the discussion online by visiting our book club blog.
