Participants will need to acquire the text, which is available for free online or through most major booksellers and many local public libraries.
Participants will be assigned to read one section a week to prepare for small-group discussions.
Registration is for all four dates and will close on March 6 or when maximum capacity is reached. We hope you’ll be able to participate in all four, but we welcome your attendance for as many or few as you can join. We are extending this invitation to Comment subscribers, but feel free to invite your non-subscribing friends.
