Love reading and looking for an opportunity to keep learning through thoughtful conversations on timely topics? Join the Read UMass Virtual Book Club to discuss new ideas and engage with other curious minds.

Our private, online forum is designed to let you read at your own pace and participate in curated discussions. Our next book is the New York Times bestseller, So You Want to Talk About Race by Ijeoma Oluo.

"In So You Want to Talk About Race, Ijeoma Oluo offers a hard-hitting but user-friendly examination of race in America. She guides readers of all races through subjects ranging from intersectionality and affirmative action to 'model minorities' in an attempt to make the seemingly impossible possible: honest conversations about race and racisim, and how they infect almost every aspect of American life." —Seal Press
