The Progressive Book Club
Please reserve the date September 20, a Thursday, 7:00 pm for a new venture at Church of the Restoration: a Progressive Book Club.
The first book we will read and discuss is Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States. Please read the first two chapters prior to our first meeting. They are: (1) “Columbus, The Indians, and Human Progress,” and (2) “Drawing the Color Line.” I will prepare some discussion questions prior to our first meeting and send them to you by e-mail.
We will need to talk about future meeting dates. It may be that the third Thursday is not the best time to meet. We are open changing our meeting date and time so as not to conflict with other obligations you may have.
I am sending this e-mail to my list of progressive friends, but after the first meeting, I will set up a list for the Progressive Book Club. If you cannot attend the first meeting but would like to be included on the list, please send me your e-mail address. Vanessa says that www.zinnedproject.org may be a useful site for our discussions.
The first meeting will be held at Church of the Restoration, 1314 N. Greenwood Ave., at 7:00 pm on Thursday, September 20.
