The American Association of University Women (AAUW) Medina Branch, as a next step to the collaborative Conversation on Race has started a new book club. Its goal is to provide a forum for conversation. The books that have been chosen present stories about human relationships – love, friendships, families – and show how racial and cultural imprints influence the characters and their actions. Monthly discussions about the books can lead to readers comparing their reactions to the story line and characters. The hope is to create new connections across neighborhoods and strengthen relationships within Medina County.
