A book recommendation from LWVDV Boardmember Sue Brandy:  Waking Up White, by Debby Irving. 2014, Elephant Room Press. https://www.debbyirving.com/the-book/"Waking Up White's personal narrative is designed to work well as a rapid read, a book group book, or support reading for courses exploring racial and cultural issues."  The Board will be discussing this book at the beginning of each Board Meeting.
