Looking forward to a great Summer book club! #desummerub2021#triogoodtroubleOn Tuesday I attended a dedication ceremony at Davis & Elkins College to dedicate a copy of Across That Bridge by Rep. John Lewis to the D&E Library. We also kicked off the Upward Bound Summer Program Book Club that is hosted by COE (The Council for Opportunity in Education). We will be reading and discussing Across That Bridge and highlighting Lewis’ life and legacy and what lessons we can apply to our lives with a focus on equality, civil rights, and civic/community engagement.
