One Book, One Ethical Society

The Ethical Society of St. Louis End Racism Team invites you to participate in a community-wide reading of Becoming Ms. Burton: From Prison to Recovery to Leading the Fight for Incarcerated Women by Susan Burton and Cari Lynn.

Based on the One Book concept promoted by local libraries and communities, we encourage members and friends of the Ethical Society to read the book over the summer and then participate in book discussions and other community activities during the late summer and early fall. The End Racism Team’s goal is to promote learning and community engagement on an issue that affects so many on a local, regional, and national level. Susan Burton says it best herself, “Telling your story is transformative. For both the storyteller and their audience, a new bridge to understanding is created.”

If you wish to participate, please complete reading the book by September 16.
