Does expanding awareness of social differences interest and concern you? By encouraging ourselves to think outside familiar "boxes" and by imagining what it would be like to walk in another's shoes, the Understanding Differences: Expanding Our Social Awareness Book Club challenges each other to do just that!

We read fiction and nonfiction and sometimes discuss a film. Recent selections are shown below.

Discussions may be in-person or via Zoom. For more information about joining the Understanding Differences Book Club, please contact Jones Library staff member Linda Wentworth at wentworthl@joneslibrary.org.
