★ New Connections Book Club: Let’s Talk

How do we talk with each other about important issues? Katherine Devine pulled this book group together after a conversation with Delegate Sam Rasoul. Now, we’re happy to announce that the group has grown and enjoys the support of a great partner: Roanoke County Public Library.

New Connections: Let’s Talk is an ongoing discussion series. We read and watch books to understand the issues and language that connect us so that we can live better together as a community. This welcoming group is open to the public and is hosted by the great team at the Roanoke County Public Library.

Never joined a book club? This would be a great first one. We read books and watch films in sections to go a little deeper. We focus on how we have the discussion as well as what we’re discussing.
