Nonfiction Book Discussion: The Address Book (Virtual)

Monday, July 26, 2021 -
7:00pm to 8:00pm
Street addresses were not invented to help you find your way; they were created to find you. In many parts of the world, your address can reveal your class, race, power, and identity. Author Deirdre Mask fills The Address Book: What Street Addresses Reveal About Identity, Race, Wealth, and Power with fascinating people and histories. She illuminates the complex and sometimes hidden stories behind street names and their power to name, to hide, to decide who counts, who doesn’t—and why. Pick up a copy at the Information Desk or Curbside, read, and join this thoughtful discussion.
