National Book Award Finalist for nonfiction, Strangers in their Own Land: Anger and Mourning on the American Right – A Journey to the Heart of our Political Divide will be the next title discussed by the Civil Discourse book group. (Come to the November 15 meeting and help identify a better name for this group!)

By UC Berkeley Professor Emerita in Sociology, Arlie Russell Hochschild, the work has been called, “a vital roadmap to bridging the deep divides in our political landscape and renewing the promise of American democracy,” (Joan Blades).

The first discussion will take place on November 15 at 7 PM at the South County Library.  We’ll talk about our goals with the group and the first 82 pages of this book.  If you’re interested but can’t get the reading done by then, don’t let that stop you. Come on out!

For more information, contact Katherine Devine. To sign up for book club updates, complete the contact form below.  See you in November!
