Non-Fiction Book & Discussion Group

The Non-Fiction Book & Discussion Group meets the second Monday of the month at 6pm. The focus is often on foreign policy and current events. Some months there is a book to read, other months there are articles or Ted Talks or guest speakers. Everyone is welcome.

Next Meeting August 10: Are DACA and the DREAM Act Good for America?

Thunderstorms halted the July Zoom Meeting; will pick up where we left off. Plan to meet Monday August 10 at 6:00 PM on Zoom discussing DACA and the “DREAM Act”. In September, “Deaths of Despair”, the surge in suicide, drug overdose, and alcoholism in the United States. In October we will read “White Fragility”. For November, as part of our election re-hash, we will discuss “One Person, No Vote”.
