Schedule of Events

The Beautiful Struggle Book Discussion
Saturdays, September 7, 21 & 28, 1:15-3 PM
Jamaica Plain Library, 30 South Street

The Friends of the Roslindale Branch Library are happy to announce its new partnership with the Jamaica Plain Branch Library with our Race and Inclusion series during the renovation! Our first book discussion will be about Ta-Nehisi Coates's memoir, The Beautiful Struggle: A Father, Two Sons, and an Unlikely Road to Manhood. We will explore how the author's upbringing has influenced his thinking about race, social justice, and politics in America. The discussions will be led by local educator Josh Frank and books can be borrowed from the Jamaica Plain Branch.
