How Can You Think That?
Do you find yourself upset by the level of political dysfunction and polarization of opinions? There must be a better way of having discussions about politics than what is seen on the internet or television or hear in shouting matches between people who disagree with each other.
Join a political book club with those interested in bridging political divides and having good conversations about why conservatives and liberals often find it hard to meet on common ground.
A new book will be featured each month as the basis for discussion.
This will be a discussion group, hopefully involving people from a variety of backgrounds and ways of thinking.
