    Is there a book for this study group? What is the name of it? Looking forward to a real experience–first figuring out this blog. I like seeing movies as a group. Marty Aronson did that in this study group last year. One week we watched the film and the next week we discussed it. Sometimes he might a guest speaker to add to the discussion. Did you ever think of the author of that new book about the Black migration, was her name walters. Lots of luck and i am with you. Just please don’t make the blog too complicated. love rhoada

    Rhoada – the book details are in the course description and there’s a link to the book’s website in the very first post on the blog.

    You can find it on Amazon here: http://amzn.to/rariZa

    It’s on sale for $14.99 and there’s a Kindle edition as well.

    I’m not looking for complicated on the blog – just a place where we can continue class discussions or do things that might not quite fit in class.

    If you have any suggestions for guests, let me know – it worked out great last time with Judy Uhl’s husband!
