    Date: October 18, 2017
    Time: 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM EDT
    Event Description:
    Book Discussion: Waking Up White, by Debby Irving. 7-8:30 p.m. Hosted by Community Concerned for Justice. For 25 years, Debby Irving sensed racial tensions in her personal and professional relationships. As a colleague and neighbor, she worried about offending people she wanted to befriend. As an arts administrator, she didn't understand why her diversity efforts lacked traction. As a teacher, she found her best efforts to reach out to students and families of color left her wondering what she was missing. Then, in 2009, one "aha!" moment launched an adventure of discovery and insight that drastically shifted her worldview and upended her life plan. In Waking Up White/i>, Irving tells her often cringe-worthy story with such openness that readers will turn every page rooting for her-and ultimately for all of us. Admission: Free.
