Ludington: Author Event with Heather McGhee | The Sum of Us (Adapted for Young Readers): How Racism Hurts Everyone

Ludington Library and Children's Book World are thrilled to welcome Heather McGhee as she shares her new book, The Sum of Us (adapted for young readers), Seating will begin at 6:30. Book signing will follow the presentation and Q&A.

The Sum of Us  is about Heather McGhee’s deeply personal journey across America. What she learned led her to write this empathetic, brilliant analysis of how we arrived where we are today in our country.  McGhee finds proof of what she calls the Solidarity Dividend: the benefits we gain when people come together across race to accomplish what we simply can’t do on our own. The Sum of Us is a heartfelt message from a black woman to a multiracial America, leaving us with a new vision for a future in which we finally realize that progress for some of us doesn’t have to come at the expense of others; that life can be more than a zero-sum game.

The former president of the inequality-focused think tank Demos, McGhee has drafted legislation, testified before Congress, and contributed regularly to news shows, including NBC’s Meet the Press. She now chairs the board of Color of Change, the nation’s largest online racial justice organization. McGhee holds a BA in American studies from Yale University and a JD from the University of California, Berkeley, School of Law.

Books will be available for purchase at the event.
