Diverse Reads is a new monthly reading group hosted online by Cedar Mill Community. Join a community of readers in exploring and discussing a variety of written works, including short stories, nonfiction, poetry and fiction that fairly represents the perspective of marginalized groups. Selections will seek to embrace diversity in its many forms.
The readings are all brief and take about 1-2 hours to read.
Discussions will take place via Zoom at 6:30 p.m. on the 3rd Thursday of the month (4th Thursday in October). Register for the sessions to receive the Zoom link.
