Join us in February: A Month of Conversations

Northfield Reads invites people to join in a month of conversations with local people of the global majority and with one of the essayists from the book A Good Time for the Truth: Race in Minnesota.  The public is welcome to attend any or all of these discussions.  Reading the book will provide background for the conversations, but is not necessary to enjoy and learn from them.


Conversations: Thanks to several local organizations, Northfield Reads will be hosting conversations with some of the immigrant groups in the community.

  • Conversation about the book and local experiences as a person of the global majority.  The speaker (essayist from the book) has had to cancel due to family issues), so the program is in transition.  We promise that it will be interesting and engaging!  Wednesday, February 27, 6:30-8:00 pm, Public Library.
