The free event will be hosted by J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College from 7-8:30 p.m., and will be held in the Lipman Auditorium of the Massey Library and Technology Center, located on the Parham Road Campus, at 1651 E. Parham Road in Richmond.

Those who plan to attend are encouraged to donate canned goods for the Central Virginia Food Bank during the “Around the World Through Books” discussion. 

Green’s book shares the story of Prince Edward County’s involvement with the Brown v. Board of Education Supreme Court Case, including details of the 1959 public school closures, which lasted five years.

The event is sponsored by Reynolds’ Multicultural Enrichment Council, which encourages cultural diversity throughout campuses and communities.
