We are on track to discuss Doughnut Economics by Raworth on Dec. 2. Not a difficult read! She’s a very clear and interesting writer.
Beyond that, the plan is to spend January (the 6th) and February (the 3rd) discussing our racial biases and how to confront them. There are various good books and presentations on this topic. We floated the idea of “book reports” instead of all reading the same title. Here are some suggested books, but feel free to add your own:
White Fragility by Robin DiAngelo—the book itself is rather academic, her YouTube presentations are much more accessible (per Barb)
So You Want to Talk about Race by Ijeoma Oluo— has been very popular and effective
Between the World and Me by Ta Nehisi Coates— seminal work of 2015, is currently about to be dramatized on HBO
Caste: the Origins of Our Discontent by Isabel Wilkerson —brand new, award-winning
Please add your suggestions to this list!
In the future, say in March or April, maybe this book:
All We Can Save: Truth, Courage, and Solutions for the Climate Crisis. Published in 2020. Essays, poems and art by diverse women who are leading on climate in the U.S.
