Event: Book Club

The Better Angels of our Nature

by Steven Pinker

From Barnes & Noble Bad news doesn't just travel fast; it sticks. Day after day, we shield our heads from unceasing media barrages of shocking crimes and genocide. Well-reported news of bloody wars, terrorism, torture, and homegrown violence feed into a sense that things are getting worse. Famed cognitive scientist and popular science author Steven Pinker (The Stuff of Science; The Language Instinct) Steven Pinker thinks that we're reading the evidence wrong. In this counterintuitive, heartening book, he argues persuasively we are in fact living in the most peaceful era in our species' history.

The Book Club meets monthly in the HCC Community Center.

Hosted by Roy Towne.
