The Woodbridge Ad Hoc Committee on Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion, in partnership with the Town Library, invites residents to a discussion of the New York Times bestseller, Minor Feelings: An Asian American Reckoning on May 26 at 7 pm.
The event is a part of the “Mosaic: Woodbridge Reading in Community” discussion series facilitated by resident Reverend Antona Brent Smith. The goal of the series is to offer an opportunity for residents to have thought-provoking conversations with their neighbors that deepen our understanding of each other and the diversity of our community.
Minor Feelings: an Asian American Reckoning by Cathy Park Hong is a blend of memoir, cultural criticism, and history that focuses on identity and racial consciousness. Copies of the book are available for check-out at the Woodbridge Town Library.
While Minor Feelings will be the starting point for discussion, participants are encouraged to attend even if they have not had a chance to read the book.
The event, which coincides with Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, will be held outdoors on the Center Building Lawn (4 Meetinghouse Lane) or, in case of rain, in the Woodbridge Town Library meeting room. RSVP to Betsy Yagla at firstname.lastname@example.org for event updates.
