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.

All are welcome to join us. We normally meet on the 2nd Tuesday of the month, from 7:00 to 8:15 p.m. Copies of the current book are available to borrow at the Reference Desk. For more information, please contact volunteer Caryl-Rose Pofcher at mydogtraining@aol.com or Jones Library staff member Linda Wentworth at wentworthl@joneslibrary.org.
