In this book, the author gives us a portrait of an unseen phenomenon in America as she explores, through an immersive, deeply researched narrative and stories about real people, how America today and throughout its history has been shaped by a hidden caste system, a rigid hierarchy of human rankings. Beyond race, class, or other factors, there is a powerful caste system that influences people's lives and behavior and the nation's fate.</p> <p> <strong>Details: </strong> </p> <ul> <li> <div>Wednesday, Dec. 16</div> </li> <li> <div>3 - 4 p.m. </div> </li> <li> <div>Register at <a target="_blank" href="https://pwcbookclub.eventbrite.com/">https://pwcbookclub.eventbrite.com</a></div> </li> </ul> <p>The dynamic discussion will be led by Phoenix Women's Commissioners Terri Jackson and Tamara Wright. </p> <p>For immediate and free access to Isabel Wilkerson's “Caste: The Origins of Our Discontent," visit <a target="_blank" href="http://phoenixpubliclibrary.org/">phoenixpubliclibrary.org</a> to sign up for a library card.</p> <p> <a target="_blank" href="https://phoenix.overdrive.com/phoenix-phoenixpl/content/media/5257052">Caste: the eBook</a> </p> <p> <a target="_blank" href="https://phoenix.overdrive.com/phoenix-phoenixpl/content/media/5284095">Caste: the Audiobook</a> </p> <p> <a target="_blank" href="https://phoenix.overdrive.com/phoenix-phoenixpl/content/collection/1086621">Caste: A Recommended Reading List</a> </p> <p>For more information, contact Shanna Archie at <a target="_blank" href="mailto:shanna.archie@phoenix.gov">shanna.archie@phoenix.gov</a>.</p> <p> <em>The Phoenix Women's Commission provides advocacy, leadership and support on issues facing women of all ages to enhance their quality of life.
