Gleason Public Library Author's Talk
Improving our Conversations about Race: An Author Talk with Fern L. Johnson and Marlene G. Fine
Former Carlisle residents Fern Johnson and Marlene Fine will discuss their new book, Let’s Talk Race: A Guide for White People (New Society Publishers, 2021), emphasizing how the book can be used as a resource to improve conversations about race. The killing of George Floyd and subsequent trial of Derek Chauvin, the health inequities revealed in the coronavirus pandemic, and the white supremacist insurrection at the US Capitol in January 2021 have led many white Americans to look more closely at racial disparities throughout the culture and at our own complicity in sustaining those disparities. Yet, we are still not engaging deeply enough in genuine conversations about race. White people too often don’t know how or are reluctant to talk about race. But without talking about race with other whites and across race, we cannot create the relationships and trust necessary to achieve racial equity and justice. Let’s Talk Race offers an approach to help meet this challenge. The authors will talk about why they wrote the book and demonstrate how to use the personal and conversation prompts in it to create conversations about race.

May 21: Transformative Learning | Satish Kumar
Schumacher College: 30th Anniversary Commemorative Book Launch
In 1991 Dartington pioneered ecological education by establishing Schumacher College – and thus addressed the pertinent issues of the present day at a time when ideas around sustainability were in their infancy.
We are coming together thirty years later to celebrate the great ideas of the regenerative economy, the earth as a living organism and recognition of the intrinsic values of nature. This event is part of a wider programme of celebrations to mark the occasion.
Satish Kumar, the founder and Dr. Pavel Cenkl, head of Schumacher College, will launch a 30th anniversary commemorative book: Transformative Learning – Reflections on 30 years of head, heart and hands at Schumacher College.
