Those members of the Richmond community who have read Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson will recognize the images in our community art installation as coming from the cover of this amazing little book. Richmond is participating in Vermont Reads, an initiative of the Vermont Humanities Council that invites multi-generational members in a community to read, discuss and think about the important themes in the chosen book. Many themes are introduced in Woodson’s Brown Girl Dreaming including family, race, faith, personal dreams and important friendships. The library is inviting every visitor to the library to explore these themes in their own lives by contributing a butterfly and a part of their own story to the art installation. Come see it. Come be a part of it.
