January & February Community Read: The Vanishing Half - Book Discussion & Potluck

January & February Community Read: The Vanishing Half - Book Discussion & Potluck January 18 | 5:30-7:30 | FREE | At CCHE or join Zoom

Join the community in reading The Vanishing Half in January and February. We hope that this community read series will equip and inspire our community, both adults and youth, to imagine and create a more inclusive and equitable world. When we as a community read together, we become part of something bigger than ourselves. In The Vanishing Half, author Brit Bennett tells the story of the Vignes sisters, identical twins inseparable as children, who ultimately choose to live in two very different worlds: one black and one white. Weaving together multiple strands and generations, from the Deep South to California, from the 1950s to the 1990s, The Vanishing Half is at once a riveting, emotional family story and a brilliant exploration of race, gender, identity, and the lasting influence of the past as it shapes a person’s desires and expectations.
