Hi Lydia,

I noticed that you changed the location from Westport to Norwalk, which is farther away from me than where the meetings had been in Westport.  If I am unable to attend in the next few months, I will withdraw from the group.  I love the meetup, but the traveling can be a little much.  Thank you.

Roseann

Hi everyone.
Thanks for a great discussion today!
Today's group agreed to change our venue for future events to the Panera at 650 Main Avenue in Norwalk (Walmart Shopping Center), for increased convenience. It is close to 95 & the Merritt & has tons of parking, & Panera seems to be working well for the group.
It was suggested that we add The Righteous Mind by Jonathan Haidt to our schedule. I was told that it was a great book, highly relevant today, and great for intelligent discussion. Please see the short synapsis below (& any other info you find) & reply to this if you have strong feelings about (not) adding the book to our roster. If there's enough interest, I will add it to our schedule.
'As America descends deeper into polarization and paralysis, social psychologist Jonathan Haidt has done the seemingly impossible—challenged conventional thinking about morality, politics, and religion in a way that speaks to everyone on the political spectrum. Drawing on his twenty five years of groundbreaking research on moral psychology, he shows how moral judgments arise not from reason but from gut feelings. He shows why liberals, conservatives, and libertarians have such different intuitions about right and wrong, and he shows why each side is actually right about many of its central concerns. In this subtle yet accessible book, Haidt gives you the key to understanding the miracle of human cooperation, as well as the curse of our eternal divisions and conflicts. If you’re ready to trade in anger for understanding, read The Righteous Mind."
If you have book suggestions at any point, please feel free to post.
Happy reading,
Lydia :)
