Mark Twain Library in Redding to commemorate Juneteenth

The Mark Twain Library in Redding is commemorating Juneteenth, the day that marks the effective end to slavery in the United States. The event takes place on the Library lawn tomorrow at 4pm.  The 90-minute commemoration will include discussions, jazz classics and selected poetry readings and will be moderated by Episcopal priest and retired Joel Barlow High School English teacher Tom Kilbourn. It is recommended that those planning to attend read the selected poems prior to the event and they can be found on the Library website. Participants are also encouraged to bring a poem of their own choosing. This discussion is part of the Conversations series which received the 2022 Connecticut Library Association Award for Excellence in Public Library Service. The Series was created in an effort to offer the community the opportunity to continue the conversation on issues of race, justice and democracy where members can exchange ideas and hear differing perspectives.  Registration is recommended, but not required.
