Join the Conversation
We asked Durham residents for their thoughts on the US Constitution. Here’s what they had to say:
Captain Raheem A. Aleem, Hispanic Liaison for Durham County Sheriff’s Office
Barbara Lau, Director of the Pauli Murray Project at the Duke Human Rights Center at FHI (Franklin Humanities Institute)
Sarah Vowell is the New York Times’ bestselling author of six nonfiction books on American history and culture. Please join us for this very special Durham Reads Together 2017 headliner event! Ms. Vowell’s presentation will be an interview format with humorist, cartoonist, and artisanal pencil sharpener, David Rees. There will be a book signing following the presentation. This free event is made possible by the generous support of the Durham Library Foundation.
American historian, writer, and educator Scott Washington presents some little-known history regarding NC’s role in the ratification of the US Constitution. A Q&A will follow.
Grab your friends and warm up your vocal chords! We’ll spend the evening singing along with our favorite Broadway musical. The library will be open a bit later than usual for this special event.
Celebrate Durham Reads Together! We are reading and discussing the graphic novel adaptation of the US Constitution, adapted by Jonathan Hennessey and Aaron McConnell. Refreshments provided!
