How Can You Think That?

A Political Book Club

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.


When: 4th Tuesday of the month.
Time: 1:00 - 3:00 PM
Dates: Jan 23, Feb 27, Mar 27, Apr 24, May 22, June 26.
