ReadDavidson, a partnership between the Town of Davidson, the Davidson Public Library, Main Street Books, and local avid readers, invites the community to register now for its first three virtual 2021 events. On March 2, 16, and April 1 at 7:00 p.m., there will be panel discussions of sequential portions of the 2021 book: Caste: The Origins of Our Discontent by Isabel Wilkerson. Readers can read along in advance as “Davidson Discusses” portions of the book on these dates, creating one continuous conversation.
