Heather McGhee: The Sum of Us (Adapted for Young Readers): How Racism Hurts Everyone

March 7 @ 7:30 pm

In conversation with award-winning journalist and broadcaster Tracey Matisak

The Sum of Us, Heather McGhee’s 2021 odyssey across the American landscape of inequality, won wide acclaim for its empathetic and incisive imagining of a future that could offer more than our current racial paradigm. A New York Times bestseller, longlisted for the National Book Award, and named one of the best books of the year by numerous media outlets, it was recently adapted as a podcast on the Obama’s Higher Ground network. One of the nation’s foremost experts in economic and social policy, McGhee is the chair of the board of directors at Color of Change, the United States’ largest online racial justice group. She is also the former president of the inequality-focused think tank Demos, where she currently serves as a distinguished senior fellow.

Masks are welcome but are not required.
Books will be available for purchase at the library on event night.
A book signing will follow the presentation.
Books provided by Uncle Bobbie’s Coffee and Books
