Whatcom READS hosts free community events that reflect themes found in each year’s selected title. This year’s community one-read selection is “Washington Black” by Esi Edugyan.
To reflect the theme of race and belonging, Whatcom READS welcomes author and professor Clyde Ford. With warmth and openness, Ford leads a discussion on race in modern-day America with an emphasis on audience participation. Meant for people of all races, participants will gain tools to engage in honest, transparent and meaningful conversations about race. Though ambitious, this talk aims to make a difference in bridging and healing the racial divide. A Humanities Washington program.
