Open Discussion Project
Monday, March 18th at 7:00 PM
With the growing polarization of our society regarding politics and problems facing our nation, Anderson’s Bookshop is pleased to be participating in the Open Discussion Project.
The club's goal is to foster dialog and better understanding between people with different political viewpoints and to provide a space for civil discourse on controversial or divisive topics. The book selections are also chosen to represent issues and viewpoints across the political spectrum. The aim of each discussion is to promote understanding ... “Ah, now I understand how they can think that!” ... rather than convince anyone of a particular point of view. We have two facilitators skilled at doing just that.
Our first book for discussion is The Righteous Mind: Why Good People are Divided by Politics and Religion, by Jonathan Haidt. The discussion will be facilitated by Hubert Morgan and Mary Gibson.
This event is free and open to the public. All viewpoints are welcome and encouraged to attend - please join us!
