The Roxbury Library Association has received a Spring-Fall 2019 New York Humanities Community Developed Adult Reading and Discussion Grant from New York Humanities. The R & D Program hosted by the Roxbury Library will offer adult participants the opportunity to explore the topic “Formed by Anger, Sustained by Hope: Making Community in Troubled Times,” devised by Roxbury resident Scholar-Facilitator Barry Seiler, through a series of thematically linked readings, including GOOD AND MAD by Rebecca Traister; BETWEEN THE WORLD AND ME by Ta-Nehisi Coates; ZEITOUN by Dave Eggers; THE TRUE AMERICAN by Anand Giridharadas; IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD by Peter Lovenheim; and HOPE IN THE DARK by Rebecca Solnit.

The Spring-Fall 2019 NYH Community Developed R & D Grant Program at the Roxbury Library will offer six reading and discussion sessions, all on Saturdays, from 10:00 a.m.-12:00 noon, on the following dates: May 18, 2019 (GOOD AND MAD); June 15, 2019 (BETWEEN THE WORLD AND ME); July 20, 2019 (ZEITOUN); August 17, 2019 (THE TRUE AMERICAN); September 21, 2019 (IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD); and October 19, 2019 (HOPE IN THE DARK). The RLA will provide copies of the Scholar-Facilitator’s NYH R & D book selections from the Four County Library System and from the Roxbury Library collection for R & D program participants’ use.
