For the last few years the Peace & Justice Center has offered a Reading Frederick Douglass Book Discussion Group led by Dr. Emily Bernard. This year Dr. Bernard proposed reading and discussing Harriet Ann Jacobs’ narrative “Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl”. The book recounts Jacobs’ life, under the  pseudonym Linda Brent. We are so grateful to Dr. Emily Bernard for this suggesting and for agreeing to lend her expertise in leading this discussion. It is also delightful to be partnering with the the Vermont Humanities Council for this event.

Join us at the Peace & Justice Center on September 13th from 7:00 PM-8:30 PM. You can pick up your free copy of “Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl” at the PJC to read before the discussion. We will be collecting the book back at the end of the program so we ask that you don’t write in them. Participants should have the book read before coming to the discussion group. Space is limited so we ask people to sign up here.

Don’t have time to read the book? Listen to it through LibriVox, YouTube, or find it where ever you get your podcasts.
