5:00 pm

At Bedford Free Library
Program will be held in the Library or via Zoom, pending current CDC guidelines

The Bedford Teacher’s Association presents a community read of The Beautiful Struggle by Ta-Nehisi Coates.

From the book cover…

“In this poetic and powerful memoir we meet Paul Coates: a Vietnam vet and a Black Panther, an old-school disciplinarian and an Aquarian believer in free love, a radical publisher and a reclaimer of lost histories. Most of all, he was an enigmatic god to his seven children, with a mission to carry them across the shoals of inner-city adolescence and through the collapsing civilization of Baltimore in the Age of Crack. His main challenges were Ta-Nehisi, spacey and comically miscalibrated for his environment, and Big Bill, charismatic and equipped for the streets. This thrillingly original story about fathers and sons evokes the golden moments within a dark age and chronicles–in startlingly beautiful language–the richly complex interior lives of boys trying to become men.”

Copies of the book, both the original version and an adaptation for Young Adults (YA), are available for checkout at the Library.  Book Discussions will be hosted by local libraries throughtout the month of February.  See More Information below for locations, dates and times.
