Polly McLean -- "Remembering Lucile"

Polly McLean will speak about and sign her new book, Remembering Lucile: A Virginia Family's Rise from Slavery and a Legacy Forged a Mile High, on Tuesday, January 29th at 7:30pm.

About the Book:
In 1918, Lucile Berkeley Buchanan Jones became the University of Colorado’s first female African American graduate  (though she was not allowed to "walk" at graduation, nor is she pictured in the 1918 CU yearbook). Remembering Lucile depicts the rise of the African American middle class through the journey of Lucile and her family from slavery in Virginia to life in the American West, using their story as a lens through which to examine the experience of middle-class Blacks in the early 20th century.

Vouchers to attend are $5 and are good for $5 off the author’s featured book or a purchase the day of the event. Vouchers can be purchased now at the store, over the phone, or at the door. Readers Guild Members can reserve seats for any in-store event.
