The You In Me Inc. Building Bridges Book Club was created to provide
education to our community. The goal of the Building Bridges Book
Club is to learn about the many cultures and ethnicities throughout
our state, country and world by reading, discussing and enjoying
various pieces of literature.
The club was created on July 21, 2002. Our first book was
All About Love: New Visions by Bell Hooks. We started
with about 4 or 5 people in attendance and have grown to over 20.
We now have two discussion groups. One group meets at a local
coffee shop or library and the other group meets at various diverse
restaurants. Some folks enjoy coming to both discussion groups.
Some of the books we have read are:
- An Afghan
Woman’s Struggle For Freedom
All That Apply: Finding Wholeness As A Multiracial Person
- A Step
- A Single
- The House
of Sand and Fog
- The Secret
Life of Bees
- The Nazi
- The Chopstick-Fork
From My Father
- The Spirit
Catches You And You Fall Down
- The Woman
Senator: A Memoir by the Daughter of Strom Thurmond
The club also enjoys special events such as guest authors, movie
day and field trips to book stores and author presentations.
