If you are interested in participating in this selection, our first book is White Fragility by Robin DiAngelo. Please check out the book club rules in an earlier post. I'll post discussion questions and other resources on the topic of white fragility here in the forum. Feel free to consume as much or as little as you'd like. We will set up a Zoom call the first week of August to discuss the book and what we've learned or unlearned. Enjoy the book!

The purpose of the CWBA book club is to read and grow! So, if you love books, and you're ready to discuss them... you’re in the right place. Not every book will resonate with you – that’s ok! You may disagree with something that another member of the group has said and that’s ok as long as it’s done respectfully. Inappropriate behavior and/or language will not be tolerated. Keep on topic, but feel free to introduce information that is relevant to the discussion (historical facts, bio details, book background, related authors or topics).
