Representatives from North Portland and Multnomah County Library will be at the RACE TALKS Books + Conversations Community Town Hall to discuss the upcoming renovation of the library building, which will result in a temporary closure. We will also discuss plans for a Cultural Heritage Center.

About Books + Conversations

The RACE TALKS Books + Conversations is an opportunity to participate in a book group facilitated by RACE TALKS: Uniting the Break the Chains of Racism. In-person or virtual participation may vary based on COVID protocols. Sign-up is offered quarterly and tickets will include the purchase of that month’s featured book. Books + Conversations are partnering exclusively with Third Eye Books. 

For the past 11 years, RACE TALKS has offered a monthly community program. Each month a panel, usually comprised primarily of People of Color, is invited to discuss “a Historical or Contemporary Experience through the lens of RACE and RACISM.” From these discussions, we’re hoping to start a life-long dialogue between groups of people who generally talk about each other, but not to each other.
