The South Burlington Recreation and Parks Young at Heart club welcomed South Burlington Community Library librarian Barbara Ziemann for a book discussion on Brown Girl Dreaming as part of the Vermont Humanities Council Vermont Reads program. “I loved the book,” reflected one Young at Heart participant. The group’s director Kathleen Cote offered thanks to Ziemann for leading the dialogue and additional thanks to SB Mentoring young leaders and mentors from South Burlington High School, who have joined the group a few times this year. The gathering was especially poignant as Ziemann, also a mentor in SB Mentoring, will be moving out of state at the end of the month. As one participant noted, “We will miss her dearly.”
