Book Club for August

August 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The next session of the book club run by the Association of Philadelphia Tour Guides (APT) is set for Tuesday August 16 at 7 pm, on Zoom. The book will be The Fearless Benjamin Lay by Marcus Rediker. Anyone with an interest in the book is welcome; participants do not have to be members of APT. No registration or payment is required. Please come prepared to discuss the book.

Benjamin Lay was a Quaker dwarf who demanded the total, unconditional emancipation of all enslaved Africans around the world.  Mocked by his Quaker friends, Lay was a visionary who practiced the ideals of democracy and equality three hundred years ago. Lay often performed colorful guerrilla theater to shame slave masters. He was also a vegetarian – something incredible at the time. Join us in reading and discussing this book about that great visionary who always said “No justice, no peace.”

Contact Board Director-at-Large Annie Leguennec with any questions or future book suggestions. The Zoom link will be sent out in the weekly email before the book club meets.
