6:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Grafton Anti-Racist Book Club (GARB)

We will be discussing the book Racism Without Racists: Color-blind racism and the persistence of racial inequality in the United States by Eduardo Bonilla-Silva. Copies are available through the CW MARS catalog, digital audio and eBook through OverDrive, and digital audio through Hoopla.

Racism Without Racists examines in detail how Whites talk, think, and account for the existence of racial inequality. The main argument of the book is that color-blind racism, a new racial ideology that emerged in the post-Civil Rights era, has emerged as the fountain of frames, stylistic components, and racial stories Whites rely on to articulate their views on racial affairs. Relying on systematically-gathered interview data, Bonilla-Silva not only de constructs the main elements of this ideology, but also explains how the ways most Whites live their lives (the "white habitus") is central to the reproduction of this ideology, why a specific segment of the White community is more racially progressive, and accounts for how Blacks are effected by the ideology. In this edition, the author has added a very didactic chapter discussing what makes "systemic racism" systemic and another examining how color-blind racism framed many issues during the pandemic.

Eduardo Bonilla-Silva is the James B. Duke Professor of Sociology at Duke University. The recipient of the W.E.B. Du Bois Career of Distinguished Scholarship Award from the American Sociological Association, he is the author of numerous other books including White Logic, White Methods. He served as president of the Southern Sociological Society and the American Sociological Association in 2017-2018.

GPL Mystery Book Group

Join us on Tuesday August 16th at 7:30pm, in Room for the GPL Mystery Book Group’s discussion of Celine by Peter Heller.

Description: An aging PI on the trail of a decades-old cold case finds more than she bargained for in the wilds of Wyoming. Old-money WASP Celine Watkins, 68, the titular protagonist of Heller's (The Painter, 2014, etc.) first detective novel, isn't your typical private eye. But most private eyes can't boast a 96 percent success rate, either. Contacted by the daughter of a National Geographic photographer who disappeared in Yellowstone two decades earlier under mysterious circumstances, Celine and husband Pete head out from Brooklyn Heights to Wyoming. As the couple retraces the photographer's last known steps, however, they find a mystery far larger than just a missing journalist. 

Copies of the books are available in regular print, large print, audio on CD, so stop by the library to pick up a physical copy. It is also available as an Overdrive / Libby eBook and eAudio.

Reads Well with Others Book Group

Join us on Monday August 29th at 7:30pm, in Room 202 for the "Reads Well with Others" Book Group’s discussion of How the Penguins Saved Veronica, by Hazel Prior.

Description: A curmudgeonly but charming old woman, her estranged grandson, and a colony of penguins proves it's never too late to be the person you want to be in this rich, heartwarming story from the acclaimed author of Ellie and the Harpmaker. Eighty-five-year-old Veronica McCreedy is estranged from her family and wants to find a worthwhile cause to leave her fortune to. When she sees a documentary about penguins being studied in Antarctica, she tells the scientists she's coming to visit-and won't take no for an answer. Shortly after arriving, she convinces the reluctant team to rescue an orphaned baby penguin. He becomes part of life at the base, and Veronica's closed heart starts to open. Her grandson, Patrick, follows Veronica to Antarctica to make one last attempt to get to know his grandmother. Together, Veronica, Patrick, and even the scientists learn what family, love, and connection are all about

Copies of the books are available in regular print, and large print, so stop by the library to pick up a physical copy.  It is also available as an eBook and eAudio through Overdrive / Libby.

Join us on Monday August 30th at 7:30pm, in the new Community Room for the Inspirational Book Group’s discussion of The Secret Wisdom of Nature: trees, animals and the extraordinary balance of all living things : stories from science and observation, by Peter Wohlleben; translated by Jane Billinghurst.

Description: In The Secret Wisdom of Nature, master storyteller and international sensation Peter Wohlleben takes readers on a thought-provoking exploration of the vast natural systems that make life on Earth possible. In this tour of an almost unfathomable world, Wohlleben describes the fascinating interplay between animals and plants and answers such questions as: How do they influence each other? Do lifeforms communicate across species boundaries? And what happens when this finely tuned system gets out of sync? By introducing us to the latest scientific discoveries and recounting his own insights from decades of observing nature, one of the world's most famous foresters shows us how to recapture our sense of awe so we can see the world around us with completely new eyes.

Copies of the books are available in regular print, and audiobook on CD, so stop by the library to pick up a physical copy.  It is also available as an eBook and eAudio in Overdrive / Libby.
