Booth Library, West Reading Room, Charleston IL

Tarble Arts Center and Booth Library present:

Book discussion led by Tarble Art Center's Director, Rehema Barber on Claudia Rankine's "Citizen: An American Lyric." This discussion is part of Booth Library’s fall exhibit and program series, “For All the World to See: Visual Culture and the Struggle for Civil Rights.”

All are invited to participate in a discussion of “Citizen: An American Lyric,” a 2014 book by American poet Claudia Rankine. “Citizen” is described as both criticism and poetry. In it, Rankine shares examples of racial aggressions – some intentional and some seemingly slips of the tongue -- in the media and in daily life, including in the classroom, at the supermarket and on TV.

The first 15 who register in advance for the discussion will receive a complimentary copy of the book to read prior to the event (additional copies are available for checkout). Rehema Barber, director of the Tarble Arts Center, will lead discussion of the book at 4:30 p.m. Oct. 17 in the West Reading Room of the library. To register for the book discussion, visit http://library.eiu.edu/exhibits/civilrights/discussion/.
