October 13: Anti-Racism Book Group
Waking Up White by Debby Irving
Leigh Anne Keichline, a Skidompha patron and educator trained in racial equity and diversity work, offers anti-racism book discussions for Skidompha.
This small group book club meets monthly through Zoom, discussing one text (or film) using guided questions and supplemental materials. There are also opportunities to meet for further discussion or take outdoor walks off-line, should you choose, once you are on the email list. 
Our next reading is Waking Up White by Debby Irving. This book is both heartfelt and eye-opening, an honest take on her ongoing journey as white Mainer grappling with race.  Email Leigh Anne with interest, and reach out as soon as possible to allow yourself time to get a book and begin reading.
Leigh Anne is an educator who holds a Masters in Education and Literacy as well as one in Political Science. Passionate about racial justice but humble in her own journey, she offers a space for curiosity, care, respect, and growth. She has been trained as a SEED leader from the National SEED Project (Seeking Educational Equity and Diversity) out of Wellesley University.
Email Leigh Anne to express interest. Please put “Skidompha Book Club” in your subject line.
