2017 Book Club Schedule
Every day, Monday through Friday, you will receive in your email a five-minute selection from a chapter of a book. By the end of the week, you'll have read 2-3 chapters. Every Monday we start new books. Sign up and start reading.
R.A.D.A. ~ Read. Awareness. Dialogue. Action.
The R.A.D.A. book discussion series provides a safe space to discuss some of the issues and movements of the day with respect and compassion. We will be reading to raise our social consciousness; to exchange ideas, understandings, and experiences; and to discuss actions individuals and communities can take to address problems we are facing. *Please note that the book club will be presented at different locations and at different times for each title and discussion.
