All Islanders are invited to attend the launch of Vashon Reads about Racism, Culture, and White Privilege, at the Vashon Bookshop, June 2nd, from 6-8pm.
Lois Watkins, author of What It Was Like, and Janie Starr, contributor to What Does It
Mean To Be White In America?, will introduce the evening with an interactional reading from their works. Watkins, black, and Starr, white, are both islanders who grew up in the southeast, living in completely different worlds. They have come to their activism from flip sides of the race coin.
