Woke and Well-Read Book Club field trip night!

On Wednesday January 16, members of The Woke & Well Read Book Club will be attending the One Book/One Philadelphia opening event with author Jesmyn Ward. This event begins at 7pm in the auditorium of the Free Library.

Woke & Well-Read explores life through African-American eyes, and is open to all. We meet two nights each month - the discussion is the same, and even more people can attend.
