"Nimbly splices together history, science, reporting and personal experiences into a taut and cautiously hopeful narrative.… Egan’s book is bursting with life (and yes, death)." —Robert Moor, New York Times Book Review


Open Discussion Event Details

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. This group'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.

The Open Discussion Project meets virtually while COVID keeps us from in-person meetings. 

Please sign up for Anderson's email list to be notified of the Zoom link each month. -->

Learn more about the groundrules for discussion on the group info page.
