Hub City is excited to welcome Herb Frazier, co-editor of "Ukweli: Searching for Healing Truth," to the Bookshop for a reading, signing, and discussion with several of the contributors to this anthology, which uses insights from South Carolina writers to explore American racism. The word "Ukweli" means "truth" in Swahili, and the book aims to move toward a healing truth that will address and redress systemic racial bias in our country. Frazier will be joined by several contributors to the book, who will read and discuss their work. This event is free and open to all, but be sure to save your spot and your copy of the book at the link. We can't wait to see you at 6pm on Tuesday, July 12th!
