Event Description

Join the AAMI for our brand-new book club, Book Club 802. This month we will be reading Wake: The Hidden History of Women Led Slave Revolts by Rebecca Hall. We’ll be meeting to discuss the book on September 12 from 6:30-7:30 PM at the Marion Public Library.

This book is available for purchase in person or online with our event partner, Swamp Fox Bookstore in Marion. Use promo code AAMIA0923 for 20%!

Why Book Club 802? The club draws its name from House File 802, legislation which bans Iowa governmental entities — including K-12 schools — and public colleges from teaching “divisive concepts.” As a non-governmental entity, we can continue to talk about race, racism and systemic oppression, and we invite everyone to join us in the conversation.
