Thank you for your interest in These Walls Between Us: A Memoir of Friendship across Race and Class. My dream is for this book to reach white readers who:
seek more truthful and resilient friendships across race and class, and wish to understand the barriers that we, ourselves, carry within us;
are ready to tackle the ways that we, often unconsciously, participate in and further white supremacy.
These Walls can find its audience only with your help. If you feel the book will be valuable, here are several things you can do – especially during the launch month of October and beyond.
Post about the book on your Facebook page if you have one, or ask others to.
Something as simple as a picture of yourself reading the book with one line of commentary would be great.
Once the book comes out, no matter where you got it, post a few sentences of feedback on:
Just click, or google any of these and “These Walls Between Us” with my name, and the right page will come up. It’s fine to say exactly the same thing on all of them.
E-mail or text your friends to tell them about the book. You can contact me for a sample e-mail or post if that would be helpful, at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are connected to an organization – nonprofit, church, Quaker meeting, synagogue, or community group – where people are concerned about racial justice, please let them know about the book.
If you are in a book group or white privilege/accountability group, or know anyone who is, please recommend These Walls Between Us. I would enjoy participating in a conversation either personally or by Zoom.
If you do ANY of these things, you can email me with the address of your hometown public library, and I’ll put it in a raffle for a free copy of the book.
Thank you so much for your help,
