Description: Set in Washington, D.C. in 1908, Wheels of Change tells the story of Emily, a young girl who spends most of her time at her father's carriage shop. The story is set against the backdrop of the industrial revolution, changing gender roles, and racial unrest. Following our discussion of the book, we will play games or do a craft relating to the story. For a copy of the book, please register by December 11.
