Daughters of the Dream - Tamara Copeland on Growing up in Civil Rights Era Richmond
Tamara Copeland will discuss her new book Daughters of the Dream Monday, November 12 at 7 pm at Book No Further. The book recounts Copeland's and her friends' experiences growing up in Richmond during the Civil Rights Era.

Copeland, who will retire at the end of the year from her position as President of the Washington Regional Association of Grantmakers, has worked extensively in nonprofit management, policy and children’s issues. (Read more)
