SJC Literature, Film & Drama Contingent – Discussion: the UUA’s Common Read for 2017-18
12:30 pm - 3:00 pm
The Social Justice Council’s Literature, Film & Drama Contingent invites the UUCB congregation to join us in discussing the UUA’s Common Read for 2017-18: Daring Democracy: Igniting Power, Meaning, and Connection for the America We Want, by Frances Moore Lappe and Adam Eichen, on January 7th from 12:30 to 3 p.m. in the Fireside Room.
In her recent article in the NY Times (“Trump is Cracking Up,” https://nyti.ms/2BCEEAY), Michelle Goldberg wrote: “If you think 2017 was bad, imagine an America without allies fighting another two-front war, this one involving nuclear weapons, under the leadership of the most hated president in modern history, while a torture apologist runs the C.I.A. The world right now is a powder keg. Trump, an untethered maniac, sits atop it, flicking a lighter that Republicans in Congress could take away, but won’t. If everything goes up in flames, we can’t say we weren’t warned.” In their book, Moore-Lappe and Eichen note that “Despair is our greatest enemy in this moment.” Bring a snack and join us for this timely discussion!
