The Uncomfortable Reads Book Club meets the fourth Tuesday of every month at 7 PM in the BookPeople café. All those open to expanding their worldviews are encouraged to attend.
Join Jason and Aleks for The Uncomfortable Reads Book Club on Tuesday, January 23. They’ll be be talking about The Way to the Spring: Life and Death in Palenstine by Ben Ehrenreich.

Don’t forget: The Uncomfortable Reads Book Club next meets Tuesday Jan. 23 at 7 p.m. and the fourth Tuesday of every month thereafter. Check our events calendar for updates.

If you can’t make the Jan. 23 meeting, here’s what’s coming up:

We try to think of the Supreme Court as this bastion of Constitutional adherence and guidance … well, guess again …
Have you read a book that made you uncomfortable? Share it with us! We are always looking for new recommendations and members. Come join us the fourth Tuesday of every month in the BookPeople café at 7 PM. See you Jan. 23!
