Books you’ve always meant to read…

This Wednesday–tomorrow–at the downtown branch of the Everett Public Library, 7 p.m.–I will be talking about and (if all goes as planned) leading a discussion about Uncle Tom’s Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe.

This is a sentimental book, racist, political to the point of being propaganda. It is also a very powerful book and an important part of the American story. Its author said God wrote it. Abraham Lincoln (it’s said) considered it a catalyst behind the Civil War.

If you haven’t already read it, that’s okay (it’s available on-line, by the way). Consider yourself  invited.
