Diversity Book Group
Contact: Lorrie McKinley and Debby Kern
Mission: To explore a variety of “differences” through both literature and film, so that we may better understand ourselves and others thereby promoting social justice on a personal level.
The group meets monthly August through May plus an annual end-of-the-year pot luck celebration to select books for the coming year. The group is loosely organized to explore a variety of differences in a relaxed and safe environment. Participants volunteer to act as facilitators. The group makes every effort to select books/films that are available in audio/descriptive formats in order to be inclusive and welcoming to all.
