Join us to discuss A Good Time for the Truth: Race in Minnesota by Sun Yung Shin. In this provocative book, 16 of Minnesota’s best writers provide a range of perspectives on what it’s like to live as a person of color in Minnesota. They give readers a splendid gift: the gift of touching another human being’s inner reality, behind masks and veils and politeness. They bring us generously into experiences that we must understand if we are to come together in real relationships. Minnesota communities struggle with some of the nation’s worst racial disparities. As its authors confront and consider the realities that lie beneath the numbers, this book provides an important tool to those who want to be part of closing those gaps.
If you’d like to read ahead, November’s book is LaRose by Louise Erdrich. Have a book suggestion for the Book Chat? Email Barbara Goldner.
