On behalf of the ReadUP Committee, please join in UP’s seventh annual ReadUP program. This year’s selection is How to Be an Antiracist by Ibram X. Kendi, who will be speaking at a virtual event this spring, as part of this year’s annual Schoenfeldt Writers Series.
How to Be an Antiracist is a New York Times #1 bestseller and was named one of the best books of the year by The New York Times Book Review, NPR, and The Washington Post, among many others. Kendi is the Andrew W. Mellon Professor in the Humanities at Boston University and the founding director of Boston University’s Center for Antiracist Research. He won a National Book Award in 2016 for his non-fiction book Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America.
A limited number of print books will be available for those who are able to pick up the book on campus. More information on how to reserve one of these free copies will be communicated in the coming weeks. Or start reading online now, through the library!
