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,
