New Book for Pax Christi

Our Pax Christi group here at the sisters of St. Francis is starting a new book.

The book, Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates, is written as a father speaking to his son.  It focuses on the way that African Americans are treated by law enforcement and the gross over-incarceration rates among African Americans.

Toni Morrison, renowned and well-respected novelist, writes of the book, “I’ve been wondering who might fill the intellectual void that plagued me after James Baldwin died.  Clearly it is Ta-Nehisi Coates.  The language of Between the World and Me, like Coates’s journey, is visceral, eloquent, and beautifully redemptive.  And its examination of the hazards and hopes of black male life is as profound as it is revelatory.  This is required reading.”

Please join us at our Pax Christi meetings and share with us this wonderful and relevant story.  Our group meets every first Thursday of each month at 7:00 pm at St. Francis Spirituality Center.  For any questions, contact Sister Paulette at (419) 447-0435 ext 136.
