NC READS Book Discussion: Even As We Breathe
September 13 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
North Carolina Reads is North Carolina Humanities’ statewide book club for 2022. North Carolina Reads features five books that explore issues of racial, social, and gender equality and the history and culture of North Carolina. All five books pose critical questions about how North Carolinians view their role in helping to form a more just and inclusive society.
Even As We Breathe by Annette Saunooke Clapsaddle
Nineteen-year-old Cowney Sequoyah yearns to escape his hometown of Cherokee, North Carolina, in the heart of the Smoky Mountains. When a summer job at Asheville’s luxurious Grove Park Inn and Resort brings him one step closer to escaping the hills that both cradle and suffocate him, he sees it as an opportunity. Registration is required to join our discussion of Even As We Breathe as space is limited. Registration opens August 23. To register and join the conversation on September 13 at 6:30 pm in the Library’s Rogow Room, please call (828) 884-1830.
