Black History Month Book Discussion

Wednesday, February 22nd at 10:00am


Join us as Lottie B. Scott discusses her two books followed by Questions & Answers.

Lottie’s newest book Waiting for Kitty is a children’s book. The book recalls stories from childhood growing up in Longtown, South Carolina. Waiting for Kitty is a book that parents can use to help talk about racism and develop understanding about growing up in a different culture.

Her other book Deep South – Deep North: A Family’s Journey is Lottie and her family’s story of growing up in racially-charged and impoverished South Carolina.  Under the cloud of racial discrimination, difficult farm working conditions, and family tensions, Lottie describes the unbreakable bonds of love that eventually emerged to forever bind her family members together.  As the passing years turn to decades, and family members move North, Lottie reveals how these bonds of love become a transformative power, forever altering the lives of each member of her family.
