Program Description: Join our Nonfiction Book Group, facilitated by Mark Orton, for a discussion on The Rebellious Life of Mrs. Rosa Parks by Jeanne Theoharis, which unveils the lifelong activism of Mrs. Parks. As Neil Irvin Painter writes in the New York Times: “Parks was not an apolitical, middle-aged lady whose fatigue kept her seated. Both shy and militant, she was a committed activist enmeshed in racial politics — and their class and gender complications — wherever she lived.”
Date/Time: Monday, February 25, 6-7:30pm
The book is available to borrow in standard print, large print, ebook, and audio formats from the library. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to register.
