Nonfiction Book Club

Join us for the February meeting of the Browsers Nonfiction Book Club

We will discuss The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America by Richard Rothstein. The discussion wil be led by customer Rachel Bayne
If you have any questions, please email Andrea.

A bit more about the book:

In this groundbreaking history of the modern American metropolis, Richard Rothstein, a leading authority on housing policy, explodes the myth that America's cities came to be racially divided through de facto segregation--that is, through individual prejudices, income differences, or the actions of private institutions like banks and real estate agencies. Rather, The Color of Law incontrovertibly makes clear that it was de jure segregation--the laws and policy decisions passed by local, state, and federal governments--that actually promoted the discriminatory patterns that continue to this day.

Our book discussions aim to bring people together to talk about books in a safe and inviting atmosphere. Our meetings are lovely and inclusive; we invite you to attend. You don't have to RSVP, just come and enjoy a lively discussion about the chosen book with other readers.

The books are available in store at 15% off if you plan to attend the book club.
