For our April JEDI Book Club, we will be reading, You’ll Never Believe What Happened To Lacey, Crazy Stories About Racism by Amber Ruffin and Lacey Lamar. Here is a link to the Goodreads Summary.
Please note that for April, we will be meeting on April 11th, the 2nd Tuesday of the month, rather than the 3rd Tuesday!
The book is written by writer and performer on Late Night with Seth Meyers Amber Ruffin and her sister Lacey Lamar. They share stories of racism that Lacey faces everyday living in Omaha, Nebraska. While the racism faced by Lacey isn’t really very funny, the book is infused with humor, and some of the stories would be unbelievable if they weren’t true. I really enjoyed the book. It was a fairly quick read, and a nice departure from what we have been reading.

Please feel welcome to attend, even if you missed earlier book club meetings. This is an open group, and we understand that our lives are busy and not everyone will be able to attend each month!
The JEDI Book Club is facilitated by Resilient Activists Brenda Bennett-Pike and Anne Melia. We hope you will join us!
