Book Talk: Waking Up White

November 16, 2017 at 9:00 PM

I recently went to a talk by the author, Debby Irving. She was in Rochester talking about her book Waking Up White: and Finding Myself in the Story of Race. The talk and the ensuing conversations with people in the audience were fascinating. If you have ever wondered about or struggled with the topic of race in the context of whiteness, this book is a good entry point into the conversation. If you can't get your hands on a copy of Debby's book, try White Like Me: Reflections on Race from a Privileged Son  by Tim Wise. It is the same topic from a different view point. --Alicia Reinhardt, Librarian
