Celebrate African American History Month with a discussion of The Grace of Silence by Michele Norris, former co-host of NPR’s All things Considered. The memoir became a profoundly personal and bracing journey into her family’s past. Norris traveled from her childhood home in Minneapolis to her ancestral roots in the Deep South to explore the reasons for the “things left unsaid” by her father and mother when she was growing up. This helped her to come to terms with her own identity.
A limited number of copies of The Grace of Silence are available for check-out at the Uptown Branch’s Circulation Desk.
