Book Club
CSWAC BOOK CLUB

Purpose:  A members-only group that explores non-fiction and fiction books relating to current topics of interest and books authored by CSWAC speakers

Eligibility:   The CSWAC Book Club membership is currently capped, but a new book club can be started with interested members.

Membership:

  • Current Book Club: 15 (optimal size)
  • Additional book club(s), appealing to additional members or specific communities of interest, may be formed

Structure:  Monthly potluck dinner hosted at the homes of Book Club members

Discussion Leaders:  One Book Club member volunteers to moderate the discussion for each book

Next Book: 


How Democracies Die, by Steven Levitsky and Jason Ziblatt.  
A reminder: the first part of this book is a discussion of the fragility of democratic states, with examples of failures. The second part of the book identifies specific behaviors and actions of the current administration that, the authors believe, strain the guardrails of American democracy. As always, our discussion should be both substantive and respectful of opposing points-of-view.

Next Meeting: Thursday, February 20, 2020 – 5:00 pm

Next Host(s):  Home of Carol Schreuder & Abe Minzer

Moderator: 

Sign-Up:  Terry Johnson | tjins@idcomm.com | (719) 219-6710
