Upcoming Book Talks: March 8 and April 19
Tuesday, February 20, 2018 9:20 AM

The Positive School-Wide Engagement and Racial Equity teams at Burroughs are planning an adult-focused evening discussion of the book A Good Time for the Truth: Race in Minnesota. The event will be for teachers, staff, parents, and guardians and will be held on March 8 from 6 to 8 pm at Burroughs. Childcare and refreshments will be provided. A follow-up discussion will be held April 19.
 
The goal of this two-part series is to foster a space for constructive conversations so we can learn how to then have meaningful conversations about racism, prejudice, and stereotypes with our children.
 
Please save these dates and join us! These will be important events for our community. Wild Rumpus has agreed to give a 20 percent discount to Burroughs families who buy the book at that store (mention Burroughs at the register). Many libraries are also carrying the book, or you can use your Burroughs Amazon Smile site to order online. Books will also be available for sale at the event, and authors will be signing books afterward.
