Truro Library Book Group – “Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents” by Isabel Wilkerson

June 26 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Truro Library Book Group
May selection is Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents by Isabel Wilkerson

Books will be available at the circulation desk a few weeks before the discussion.

In this brilliant book, Isabel Wilkerson gives us a masterful portrait of an unseen phenomenon in America as she explores, through an immersive, deeply researched, and beautifully written narrative and stories about real people, how America today and throughout its history has been shaped by a hidden caste system, a rigid hierarchy of human rankings.

“An instant American classic and almost certainly the keynote nonfiction book of the American century thus far.”— The New York Times

The Book group is now meeting inside (or outside when possible) the Library. If you would like to join virtually, please email Maggie to receive a Zoom invite.
