Sunday with Friends: Jerry Jones
September 12 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Go and Come Again: Segregation, Tolerance, and Reflection” by local author and educator Dr. Jerry Jones has been chosen as the 2021 Community Read selection for the Washington County, Virginia Public Library.
With a focus on the history and culture of Glade Spring, Virginia, during the era of segregated schools and Jim Crow laws in the 1950s and 1960s, Jones’ book, “Come and Go Again,” serves as a tribute to the struggles that many African-Americans faced in their pursuit of an education.
The Community Read project encourages the community-wide reading of a single book to foster shared conversation along with related events and activities for all ages. This year’s Community Read project launches with an author program on Sunday, September 12, at 3:00 p.m. at the Abingdon library.
