Episcopal NY Reads 1 Book: How To Be An AntiRacist
Thursdays at 7 pm, September 10 through October 15
This fall, all 200 parishes in the Episcopal Diocese of New York are invited to form local groups to read, discuss, and learn from one of the most timely and important books of our day: How To Be An Antiracist, by the acclaimed winner of the National Book Award, Ibram X. Kendi. To create a local group, and in the spirit of collaboration, St. Bart’s and St. Mark’s in the Bowery will read and discuss this book together online for six weeks. Discussion will be facilitated by the Reverend Susan Anderson-Smith, Associate Rector for Justice and Reconciliation at St. Bart’s, and the Reverend Anne Sawyer, Rector of St. Mark’s.Our journey will culminate in an exclusive Diocesan online event on October 22, when the author will answer questions and reflect on the nationwide antiracist movement that his writings have helped to fuel.
