Everyone Has a Story Reading Challenge
All Branches
Stories provide insight. Whether it's a personal narrative, description of cultural heritage, or an imagined fantasy, an individual's story provides insights into who they are and what shapes and inspires them. Shared stories help us see what makes us unique and how we are the same. By reading or listening to an individual's story, we can learn to treat people with the respect and dignity they deserve no matter their race, color, gender, religion, ability, or level of income. Discover different stories, learn about people seeking to eliminate social injustices, and find resources for discussing issues about race. All ages.

Find out more about participating with a Beanstack account at mcpl.info/everystory.

Join us via Zoom for Coffee with Friends with renowned author and historian, James Madison. Madison will discuss his recently released book, The Ku Klux Klan in the Heartland, in which he details the creation and reign of the infamous organization. He offers a detailed history of this powerful organization and examines how, through its use of intimidation, violence, religious belief, and the ballot box, the ideals of the Klan in the 1920s have on-going implications for America today.

The Friends of the Library are delighted to also welcome Carolyn Calloway-Thomas, the Chair of the Indiana University Department of African American and African Diaspora Studies who will facilitate the conversation with Madison. Bring your questions!

Madison is the Thomas and Kathryn Miller Professor Emeritus of History at Indiana University. The Midwestern History Association recently honored him with the Frederick Jackson Turner Lifetime Achievement Award.

Register now and also receive a discount to purchase the book from IU Press and a special offer from Hopscotch Coffee for the month of February. You will receive the Zoom link via email 30 minutes before the program begins.
