Understanding Differences Book Club

This club is no longer meeting. Thank you to the volunteers who led it for many years!

Books Discussed

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!
