There are many ways to make a positive change in the community. Cleveland Public Library is helping facilitate change with our thought-provoking author series, Writers & Readers.
The next candid conversation on the Importance of Civic Education and Engagement will include two award-winning authors:
- TIME Magazine columnist and MSNBC contributor Eddie Glaude, Jr. who wrote Begin Again: James Baldwin’s America and its Urgent Lessons for Our Own and Democracy in Black: How Race Still Enslaves the American Soul.
- Award-winning poet, young adult novelist, and cookbook author Caroline Randall Williams. Her work includes The Diary of B.B. Bright, Possible Princess, and Soul Food Love.
Continue the conversation at a workshop on Wednesday, April 21 at 4:30 p.m. with Marianne Crosley and Rachel Ciomcia of the Cleveland Leadership Center. They will offer tools to help us engage in meaningful change and build an appreciation for civic education as a foundation for life.
Registration is required for both virtual events. Interested participants can register at cplorg.bigscoots-staging.com/writersreaders21.
