Join us Tuesday, January 27 at 7:00 p.m. in the Redwood Room to hear KGO radio personality, actor, and comedian Brian Copeland talk about his book, Not a Genuine Black Man. It is the 2009 selection for the Silicon Valley reads program. This memoir about growing up in San Leandro in the 1970s as part of one of the first African-American families in San Leandro is both funny and poignant. The book provides a valuable, eye-opening look at the meaning of race and how one's surroundings affect who we become in life.
Take part in Silicon Valley Reads and hear Brian Copeland discuss his thought-provoking story. Sign up for this free library author event at the Reference Desk, or call (408) 615-2900.
The Library thanks the Foundation & Friends of Santa Clara City Library for its generous support of this program.
Copeland begins a series of community appearances Tuesday, January 13 at Campbell Public Library.
