In 2012, the city of Minneapolis launched the first-ever One City One Read program where everyone in town is invited to read the same book and join in a community wide discussion. My book, The Grace of Silence was selected for the community wide read and I could not have more excited. Most rewarding was the idea that the book would be used as a starting point for conversations about race, identity, family, and neighborhood history. I have created this special page on my website to capture some of the activities around One Minneapolis One Read. Enjoy and please be sure to let us know if you’re involved in a discussion or activity in Minneapolis related to The Grace of Silence or The Race Card Project™.
