★ The Righteous Mind to be discussed Sunday, June 11

haidtKatherine Devine is hosting a discussion of The Righteous Mind: Why Good People are Divided by Politics and Religion by Johnathan Haidt. The book is shaping conversation about how we work together through our differences. A group will gather in the Purple Room at Sweet Donkey on Sunday, June 11, from 2:30 to 4:30 PM.

From Rebecca Litchfield’s review in the London School of Economics Review of Books: “Audacious… what is so impressive about this work is how he goes about demonstrating why [mutual understanding] is such a difficult thing for us to achieve, and what the tools are that could make it possible. It’s a difficult read, not because of the style, but because the content may challenge you to accept that the ‘other side’ isn’t so bad after all, and that perhaps your own moralistic mind could do with a shake up.”

The group was inspired by Delegate Sam Rasoul who recommended the book. Contact Katherine or get more information on the Facebook event page. ★
