★ Mapping a BOOK CITY


We’re mapping a BOOK CITY, right here in Roanoke, exploring equity and engagement at the intersection of books and place.

Thanks to the hundreds of people who came out to hear Dr. Ibram X. Kendi and Justin Phillip Reed at Indecent Histories at the Melrose Branch of the Roanoke Public Library on August 29th. Look for information soon on how we’re carrying forward the conversation with a Stamped from the Beginning Book Club.

Read Stanley R. Hale’s Roanoke Tribune article on the evening.

Summer with the National Book Awards was a program of the National Book Foundation and Roanoke Public Libraries.
