We’re all about setting new reading goals for the new year, and we suspect you are as well!
Still on our minds are all the great books featured at the 25th annual Texas Book Festival in the fall, including one book that’s really stuck with us: Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents by Pulitzer Prize-winning author (and TBF 2010 alum) Isabel Wilkerson.
We chose Caste as our December pick for the Austin360 Book Club Powered by TBF, as the session was the most attended session at the Festival and so many of you wanted to discuss the book more. We’re excited to announce we are hosting a free virtual book club discussion about Caste at the end of this month.
The conversation will be hosted by TBF Executive Director Lois Kim and Austin African American Book Festival Founder Rosalind Oliphant Jones. Come prepared to discuss this excellent book in an intimate setting with fellow book lovers on Thursday, January 28, at 5:30 p.m. CT! on January 28! The conversation is first-come, first-served, so make sure you register early if you’re planning to attend, since we only have a limited number of spots.
Register here to save your spot. You’ll receive a Zoom link closer to the event.
