This monthly book club unpacks the complex and challenging subject of race in America by reading and discussing books on this topic. Participants feel the book club makes a difference in their lives. The book club provides:
- the opportunity to hear the other side of the conversation;
- a safe place to ask questions and hear criticism;
- an education on historical events that shape the nation’s current events;
- and the chance to build relationships with members from different backgrounds.

In the following months, Carla Fletcher approached the Ferguson Municipal Public Library about creating a book club centered on the free and honest discussion of race and race relations in America. With these discussions, Carla hoped to positively influence the hearts and minds of her community through an open dialogue about the challenging and complex topic of race. With the assistance of Dan Suchs as moderator, the Ferguson Readings on Race Book Club held its first meeting in January 2015.
