December 5 - Someone Knows My Name by Lawrence Hill
Portrays a lesser known aspect of the American Revolutionary War—the fate of slaves who the British offered to free for their role. Aminato Diallo was kidnapped by slaver traders, taken to South Carolina, fled to Nova Scotia and eventually ended in London.
Throughout the year our group will be reading books, both fiction and non-fiction, that highlight the literature, culture, environment, and politics of various parts of the world. Each month a LSC-CyFair faculty member will introduce and facilitate the conversation in LRNC 215 on the dates listed below at 1:00 p.m. unless otherwise noted. Please pick up a reading guide from the 2nd floor reference desk the first week of each month. Join us as we delve into Books without Borders. Contact Patsy Brautigam (email@example.com) for more information.
The club meets the last Wednesday of the month at the new time of 12:00 p.m. in library meeting room 131. We discuss a different theme each month. For more details, contact Lindsey Bartlett at 281.290.3973 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
