The Spring Book Club will read Between the World and Me, by Ta-Nehisi Coates, a best-selling memoir and history on race in America. We'll come together at the Spring Book Club to respond to the book, and in particular to reflect on the books themes in relation to faith and the work of the church.

About the book (from the Amazon description): In a series of essays, written as a letter to his son, Coates confronts the notion of race in America and how it has shaped American history, many times at the cost of black bodies and lives. Thoughtfully exploring personal and historical events, from his time at Howard University to the Civil War, the author poignantly asks and attempts to answer difficult questions that plague modern society.
