NEW! Book Club

The inaugural meeting of the LWVCNM Book Club was held on June 27, 2023. The attendees discussed Evicted – Poverty and Profit in The American City by Matthew Desmond.

In addition to discussing the book, the group made decisions on future book club events:

Date: August 30, 2023 (Wednesday)
Time: 5:30 – 7:30 p..m.
Location: LWVCNM Office Conference Room
Title: The Soul of America – The Battle For Our Better Angels by Pulitzer Prize winner Jon Meacham
As described on the book jacket, “… Jon Meacham helps us understand the present moment in America by
looking back at critical times in our history when hope overcame division and fear.”

Date: October 25, 2023 (Wednesday)
Time: 5:30 – 7:30 p.m.
Location: LWVCNM Office Conference Room
Title: The Persuaders – At the Front Lines of the Fight for the Hearts, Minds, and Democracy by best-selling author
Anand Giridharadas
As described on the author’s website, “The persuaders is a stunning insider account of activists, politicians, educators, and every day citizens who are on the ground working to change minds, bridge divisions, and fight for democracy.”

Join Book Club coordinators Janet Kirkpatrick, Mary Mulvany, and Laura Downing for lively discussion and conversation. Bring along a “potluck” snack – something sweet or savory – to share with the group (not required, just if you have the time).

Please RSVP to Janet if you plan to attend. Look in your handbook for her contact information, or call or email the LWVCNM office.
