2017 marks the 15th year of the Vermont Reads program, in which the Vermont Humanities Council invites citizens across the state to read the same book and participate in community activities related to the book’s themes. This year the book is Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson. This beautiful memoir of the author’s childhood is written in verse. It tells the story of a young person finding her voice and examining the strength of family bonds while growing up African American in the 1960s and 1970s. Children and adults alike will enjoy the authenticity of this memoir. There are free copies of the book available at the Richmond Free Library and the community is invited to join us for a discussion of the book at the library on Tuesday, February 21 at 7 pm.
All ages are welcome at the community book discussion of Brown Girl Dreaming.
