Lunch Bunch

The votes are in, and Durham’s Virtual Lunch Bunch has selected Brandy Colbert’s The Only Black Girls in Town as their final read of the 2020-21 school year! If you would like to join this virtual group that meets Wednesdays at 1:00 p.m., share your email address at and Mrs. Baker will email the meeting link to you. There is no financial commitment.
