Book Discussion Group on “The Fire This Time” Jesmyn Ward’s acclaimed book on race in America today will be the focus of two evening discussions. The New York Times Book Review described the book as “A stirring anthology that takes more cues from Baldwin than just its title. . . Every poem and essay in Ward’s volume remains grounded in a harsh reality that our nation, at large, refuses fully to confront.” This class follows James Baldwin’s The Fire Next Time (see above), but may be taken independently.

Facilitator: Eric Terrell and Isabel Sheridan have been leading Adult Programs classes and talk-backs on plays by August Wilson and contemporary Black playwrights for five years.

Details: Two Thursdays: Mar. 15 and 22; 7 – 8:30 p.m. Fee: None ; book available in our church Beacon Bookstore.
