People-Places-Things says
What Does It Mean to Be White in America? is an anthology published by 2Leaf Press (NYC) and scheduled to be released April 15, 2016. It contains more than eighty personal narratives that break the white code of silence. The authors come from an broad range of backgrounds and demographics, but share one thing in common—we are white and willing to write about what being white has meant to us.

For PCC's controversial and groundbreaking month of events exploring and deconstructing Whiteness in America, Pacific Northwest authors will read excerpts from their pieces, woven together into a composite performance by Tereza Topferova Bottman, with discussion following.
