Books & Community: Pendleton Discussion @ Pendleton Branch | Pendleton | South Carolina | United States

Join us for a discussion of the Books & Community Celebration pick, Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates.  The National Book Award-winning title is a series of essays, written as a letter to his son, Coates confronts the notion of race in America and how it has shaped American history, many times at the cost of black bodies and lives. Thoughtfully exploring personal and historical events, from his time at Howard University to the Civil War, the author poignantly asks and attempts to answer difficult questions that plague modern society.
