MANY STORIES, ONE MIAMI: A CONVERSATION ABOUT COMMUNITY
– Participate in monthly discussions on Race and Identity, the Immigrant Experience and Religious Pluralism –
(MIAMI, MAY 31, 2013) – The Miami-Dade Public Library System and MCCJ present a summer reading discussion program which strives to foster dialogue about diversity across the many neighborhoods that make up Miami-Dade County. Open to everyone, the program hopes to inspire readers to share their own stories and learn about their neighbors.
Each month will focus on a theme and includes topics such as race and identity (June); the immigrant experience (July) and religious pluralism (August). Each theme will have a list of recommended book titles for patrons to check out and read. At the end of the month, a special facilitated discussion on that topic will be held at select branch libraries. For more information about this summer reading discussion, contact 305.375.5180.
