About this Event

In partnership with the Marin County Free Library, PRNSA invites you to read the book Black Faces, White Spaces: Reimagining the Relationship of African Americans to the Great Outdoors by Dr. Carolyn Finney. After an introduction and brief Q&A with Dr. Finney, we will have an open discussion moderated by local chef, entrepreneur, and anti-racist activist Camille Ptak, along with PRNSA’s Isaac Taylor.

Copies of the book are available at both Inverness and Point Reyes Libraries. Note: these copies will be reserved at the desks. Please call and reserve a copy or stop by during curbside hours and request the book. FYI, if someone calls and needs the book sent to Bolinas or Stinson Beach, the librarians can have the book sent to the library and placed on the hold shelf. Also – Black Faces, White Spaces is available on Hoopla through the library with no wait. Instructions for downloading to Hoopla on the library’s website:
