The Iberia African American Historical Society invites the public to join their first book club discussion of 2021.
On Jan. 11, 2021 at 6 p.m., IAAHS will host a virtual discussion on Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents by Pulitzer Prize Winner Isabel Wilkerson. Over the course of the year, IAAHS will hold six additional discussions on books, articles, TED Talks, podcasts, etc. with a focus on African American history.
Participation in the book club is free and open to all, though they do ask that participants sign up here to stay up-to-date on book club information, such as upcoming selections and topics, discussion dates, questions submissions, and other details. Copies of book selections are available at local libraries, booksellers, and online, or can be borrowed from a friend.
