Diversity Now 

When: Wed., July 8 2015
Racial diversity, cultural celebration and a good book will all be presented today at the Cleveland Public Library where the Ohio Center for the Book’s Brown Bag Book Club meets for a second time. This afternoon, it will be discussing Esi Edugyan’s Half-Blood Blues. Set in 1939’s Nazi Germany, the book shows how mixed race Berliners dealt with discrimination and violence during one of history’s most turbulent times. The book club, which is meant to shed light on racial issues, meets once a month to discuss an Anisfield-Wolf Book Award winner. The award, which recognizes literary accomplishments in human rights, is given each year by the Cleveland Foundation and was awarded to Edugyan’s work in 2012. The discussion begins at noon on the second floor of the main library. Next month, the club will be discussing Nam Le’s The Boat.
