June Book Club!
Posted By hvazquez on June 13, 2021
We welcome you to join us on Wednesday, June 16, 2021 at 7pm in person in the Multi-Purpose Room (MPR) or via Zoom to discuss the book “What Unites Us: Reflections on Patriotism” by Dan Rather. This is an open event for the residents & their guests who would like to join us. Note that masks will still be required if meeting in person in the MPR.
“At a moment of crisis over our national identity, venerated journalist Dan Rather has emerged as a voice of reason and integrity, reflecting on—and writing passionately about—what it means to be an American. Now, with this collection of original essays, he reminds us of the principles upon which the United States was founded. Looking at the freedoms that define us, from the vote to the press; the values that have transformed us, from empathy to inclusion to service; the institutions that sustain us, such as public education; and the traits that helped form our young country, such as the audacity to take on daunting challenges in science and medicine, Rather brings to bear his decades of experience on the frontlines of the world’s biggest stories. As a living witness to historical change, he offers up an intimate view of history, tracing where we have been in order to help us chart a way forward and heal our bitter divisions.
With a fundamental sense of hope, What Unites Us is the book to inspire conversation and listening, and to remind us all how we are, finally, one.” – Amazon
