Book discussion – Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents

The Bonner County Human Rights Task Force (BCHRTF) and the Library present a weekly book discussion on the book, Caste: The Origin of Our Discontents by Isabel Wilkerson.

Caste is an Oprah’s Book Club Pick and Pulitzer Prize-winning, bestselling author of The Warmth of Other Suns examines the unspoken caste system that has shaped America and shows how our lives today are still defined by a hierarchy of human divisions.

“An instant American classic.”—Dwight Garner, The New York Times .” As we go about our daily lives, caste is the wordless usher in a darkened theater, flashlight cast down in the aisles, guiding us to our assigned seats for a performance.

Our discussion will feature the Reverend Dr. Ann Masai, a BCRTF member and former Board member, who is an Interfaith Minister ordained in The Cathedral of St. John the Devine in New York City and has launched many social enterprises.

Attend in person or via Zoom. Please register at https://www.eventbrite.com/e/caste-book-discussion-tickets-205751316727

For more information contact Mike Bauer at 208-265-2665 or BCHRTF member Lynn Bridges.

The book is available to check out at the Library, and for purchase at Amazon and Vanderford’s in downtown Sandpoint.
