August Book Club Meeting: 8/28, 6 p.m. at Rough Draft Bar & Books
Hi everyone: Nice to see folks last evening. The book that we voted on for our August discussion (August 28, 6-7:30 p.m.) is Rules for Revolutionaries: How Big Organizing Can Change Everything. If you’re someone who like most of us doesn’t get enough time to read, here’s an option: read a few reviews of August’s book, which is always enough to participate in the discussion. Here are a few: • https://www.thedailybeast.com/how-to-plan-the-political-revolution-that-could-stop-president-trump • https://www.alternet.org/activism/rules-revolutionaries-how-big-organizing-can-change-everything • http://netchange.co/our-review-of-rules-for-revolutionaries • http://www.thechangeagency.org/tactics-for-mobilisers-a-review-of-rules-for-revolutionarie/ Also, in the last few minutes of our discussion, we’ll vote on September’s book. A list of those under consideration is here: https://www.goodreads.com/group/bookshelf/395286-kingston-ny-s-policy-politics-book-club Thanks. Steven
