BOOK CLUB

The next meeting of the State Library’s book club will be held:

Date: Thursday, May 19, 2016
Time: 12 Noon to 1pm
Location: Forum Building
The book we will be discussing is “Warriors Don’t Cry” by Melba Beals.

A powerful, first-hand account of one of the African-American students ordered to go the high school in Little Rock, Arkansas in 1957. These students were known as the “Little Rock Nine”. Military troops had to be brought in to protect the students. This is a story of one of the first events in the Civil Rights Movement in the late 1950’s and 60’s.
Books read for this club are available in a variety of formats at your local library. Commonwealth employees can also use EZBorrow through the State Library’s website to have it delivered right to the State Library.
