Diversity Discussions

We are pleased to announce the new quarterly Diversity Discussions program! This book club is open to all FLA members. The book selections for discussion were carefully selected to help open up dialogue on topics of diversity and how they may relate to the library workplace. Together, we’ll create a fun and safe environment where we can have conversations on topics like gender identity, race, and immigrant experiences with the help of some really interesting reads. Here’s what we’ve got lined up:

July 22, 2pm (est): Beyond Trans: Does Gender Matter? By Heath Fogg Davis Watch the Recording

October 15, 2pm (est): Disability Visibility: First-Person Stories from the Twenty-First Century by Alice Wong  Watch the Recording

January 26, 2022: Floating in a Most Peculiar Way by Louis Onuorah Chude-Sokei

April: I Was Their American Dream: A Graphic Memoir by Malaka Gharib

The DEIA Committee is pleased to announce the finale to the Diversity Discussions program.  

Our book selection this month is the graphic memoir I Was Their American Dream by Malaka Gharib, a heartfelt coming-of-age story about growing up as a first-generation American. Join us as we geek out over the art style and have honest conversations about cross-cultural heritage, representation in popular culture, and more!
