Reading for Transformation Book Club

May 27, 2019 / 12pm - 7 pm

Calendar: Event/Performance
Categories: Literary

Join the Speaking Down Barriers team for the monthly book club Reading for Transformation: engage with readings that will guide us towards a holistic understanding of the transformation that must take place within ourselves and the world around us. We are working towards the dismantling of the barriers that continue to perpetuate violence, hate, and division. These various insights will broaden our perspective and lead us towards meaningful confrontation. You are welcome to grow with us.

For your convenience, the book club will meet at the Hub City Bookshop on 4th Mondays at two separate times: 12:00 PM-1:00 PM, 7:00 PM-8:00 PM. The Hub City Bookshop is located at 186 W Main St, Spartanburg, SC 29306. Books can be purchased at discounted rates through Hub City Bookshop. Become a member of Hub City Bookshop and receive even more discounts!
