Exploring Diversity Book Club


Our new Exploring Diversity Book Club is now meeting on third Thursday of each month. Our group is currently reading “The True American: Murder and Mercy in Texas” by Anand Giridharadas. The book chronicles the story of Raisuddin Bhuiyan, an immigrant from Bangladesh who came to Dallas to make a new home. Bhuiyan was shot by an avowed “American terrorist” named Mark Stroman who entered the mini mart where he was working as a retaliation for the 9/11 attacks. The group will meet on Thursday May 24 at 1:30pm in the church library to discuss the book. Copies of these and other new books exploring dynamics of race, culture and history are currently available in the church library.
