Author Talk - Tamara Copeland "Daughters of the Dream"
Tamara Copeland will discuss her new book Daughters of the Dream Monday, November 12 at 7 p,m at Book No Further. The book recounts Copeland's and her friends' experiences growing up in Richmond during the Civil Rights Era.
Copeland says the injustices of Richmond in the 1950s and '60s is only the backdrop of the story that is "about rising above what was intended to hold us back."
Copeland, who will retire at the end of the year from her position as President of the Washington Regional Association of Grantmakers, has worked extensively in nonprofit management, policy and children’s issues. She led Voices for America’s Children, the National Health & Education Consortium, and the Infant Mortality Initiative of Southern Governors’ Association and Southern Legislative Conference. She was legislative director for Congressman Bobby Scott’s (D-VA) Legislative Director. In 2017, Tamara was appointed as the Visiting Nielsen Fellow at Georgetown University’s McCourt School of Public Policy to explore the role of philanthropy in addressing racial equity in the DC region and co-teach a graduate seminar on philanthropy and racial justice.
A signing will follow the program. Admission is free. Books are available prior to the event in the store or online and at the event. Bringing books not purchased at Book No Further is discouraged.
