What is the meaning of race? What is the impact of racism on our community? What can we do about it?

If these questions intrigue you, meet at the Waterbury Public Library on the third Tuesday of the month to explore these and other questions. Meetings are from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.

The book “to Talk About Race?” by Ijeoma Oluo, will serve as the text for discussion. Participants can order a copy of Oluo’s book through the library’s inter-library loan. Ask at the help desk, or call the library (244-7036) for other options and to sign up.

Dates for the fall are Sept. 17, Oct. 15, Nov. 19 and Dec. 17.

This series will be facilitated by Life LeGeros from South Duxbury. He works at the University of Vermont as a professional development coordinator partnering with educators to help middle schools become more student-centered. He earned a doctorate in education from the University of Massachusetts-Boston and strives to deepen his understanding.
