Open Discussion Project
August's book for discussion is A Fine Mess: A Global Quest for a Simpler, Fairer, and More Efficient Tax System by T. R. Reid
The group's goal is to foster dialog and better understanding between people with different political viewpoints and to provide a space for civil discourse on controversial or divisive topics. There are several moderators whose viewpoints span the political spectrum: left, right and neutral. The book selections are also chosen to represent issues and viewpoints across the political spectrum. The aim of each discussion is to promote understanding ... “Ah, now I understand how they can think that!” ... rather than convince anyone of a particular point of view. Open Discussion Project meets the second Wednesday of the month at 7 pm.
As with all of our in-store book clubs, participants receive a 21% discount on the discussion book; just let us know at the counter when you purchase it.

New York Times bestelling author T. R. Reid travels around the world to solve the urgent problem of America's failing tax code, unravelling a complex topic in plain English - and telling a rollicking story along the way.
