Dear Evanston is a group that seeks to engage everyone in the Evanston community—people of all ages, races, religions, sexual orientations, and genders; teachers, elected officials, law enforcement, religious and social service leaders— in creative and powerful conversations about the causes of violence, ways in which violence affects us all, and what part each of us can play to help end it As a sponsor of Dear Evanston's Racial Justice Book Group, Bookends & Beginnings offers the group's selections at a 15% discount to anyone who is reading the book in order to take part in the discussion. We also donate five copies of each selection to Dear Evanston to offer free of charge to those who can't purchase them. Stop by to pick up your copy of the April 16 selection, Despite the Best Intentions: How Racial Inequality Thrives in Good Schools, an in-depth study with far-reaching consequences that revolutionizes our understanding of both the knotty problem of academic disparities and the larger question of the color line in American society. And join the conversation!
