The Hirsh Health Sciences Library’s Anti-Racism Reading Group is excited to announce our Fall Reading Series – and you’re invited! All meetings are held virtually on Zoom and are not recorded.
Through a series of three meetings held the first or second Friday of each fall month, we will learn, unlearn, and be inspired to take actions through our discussion of these readings:
- September 10th, noon to 1pm EST
What Is Race? by Whit Taylor
Explore the meaning of race through a graphic medicine (comic) reading.
- October 8th, noon to 1pm EST

Heart Berries: A Memoir by Terese Marie Mailhot
