Upcoming Events–Northfield Reads


  • Tuesday, March 12, Prof. Joan Hepburn will speak on The Intersectionality of Race, Class, and Gender. From 7:00-8:30 pm, Northfield Community Resource Center.
  • Thursday, March 28, Steve Kelly will speak on Music and Race: Reflections and Resonances. Issues of race have intersected and continue to intersect with American musical culture; most notably in the history of jazz, but in the history of other types of music as well. This talk will present personal stories of some of these intersections as they reflected particular times and then resonated into the future. From 6:30-8:00 pm at the Northfield Public Library.


  • Thursday, April 4, Adriana Estill and Sarah Carlsen will lead a conversation  on the meaning and impact of whiteness on our lives. From 7:00-8:30 pm, First UCC Church.


  • Northfield Reads will close out the year of discussion of Race in Minnesota and Northfield by returning to a panel of Northfield residents who are people of the global majority.  We will invite them to share some about how it feels for them to live in Northfield and discuss in small groups how we can make this a welcoming community for all who choose to live here.  May 16, 7:00-8:30, First UCC Church.
