New community read


For those interested in learning more about our current system of mass incarceration, we are planning a new community read of Michelle Alexander's book, which will take place on Friday nights in the Sadie Peterson Delaney African Roots Library beginning at 6 pm. The first meeting is scheduled for Friday, 29 March--so save the date! Copies of the book will be available at the first meeting, and we will send you information about speakers for the series.

If you are interested in getting involved right now, the Poughkeepsie group meets every 2nd and 4th Wednesday of the month. Our next meeting is this coming Wednesday, 13 March, at 6 pm, in the Sadie Peterson Delaney African Roots Library, which is located on the 2nd floor of the Family Partnership Center (29 N. Hamilton Street). There is ample parking in the lot across the street. We look forward to welcoming you to any meeting or action.
