Hello Readers!

I’m happy to report that participation in our Challenge this summer has exceeded all expectations!  We always say that U City Library is home to the best readers in the world, and our Challenge participants have proven it time and again.

Because we are likely to be a large group at our Zoom discussion of The Portable Frederick Douglass pp. ix-149 on Wednesday, June 23 at 7pm, led by Dr. Bryan Jack, I’d like to ask in advance for readers to submit questions for Dr. Jack to me at kmgallagher@ucitylibrary.org.  I’ll pass those along to Dr. Jack ahead of time, and add a few of my own, all of which I will share with you before the discussion.

What do you want to know about Douglass and his story?  We want to make as many of your voices ‘heard’ as possible, so please don’t be shy!

If you’re interested in exploring our Challenge titles in different formats, take a look at Overdrive by Libby and Hoopla, where you can find eBook versions of The Portable Frederick Douglass and audio of The Good Lord Bird, respectively.

As always, don’t forget to stop by the blog for the latest news and to access Dr. Jack’s kickoff lecture.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
