There are many ways to make a positive change in the community. Cleveland Public Library is helping facilitate change with our thought-provoking author series, Writers & Readers.
The next candid conversation on the Importance of Civic Education and Engagement will include two award-winning authors:
- TIME Magazine columnist and MSNBC contributor Eddie Glaude, Jr. who wrote Begin Again: James Baldwin’s America and its Urgent Lessons for Our OwnandDemocracy in Black: How Race Still Enslaves the American Soul.
- Award-winning poet, young adult novelist and cookbook author Caroline Randall Williams. Her work includesThe Diary of B.B. Bright, Possible Princess and Soul Food Love.
Inspired by Eddie Glaude, Jr. and Caroline Randall Williams? Continue the conversation at a workshop on Wednesday, April 21 at 4:30 p.m. with Marianne Crosley and Rachel Ciomcia of the Cleveland Leadership Center. They will offer tools to help us engage in meaningful change and build an appreciation for civic education as a foundation for life.
