Political Book Club
Seacoast OLLI has formed a political book club as a result of conversations that began in the Great Decisions class that has been offered over the past few years. The group generally meets on the third Monday of the month at 1:00pm at Granite State College, Portsmouth. The books discussed will focus on domestic politics and ideas. All opinions are valued and will be part of a respectful conversation. Books that have been read and discussed include:
- How Democracies Die, by Steven Levitsky and Daniel Ziblatt
- A Higher Loyalty, by James Comey
- Six Amendments How and Why We Should Change the Constitution, by John Paul Stevens
Next book for the February 24th meeting is
- Healing American Democracy: Going Local, by Mike Hais, Doug Ross, and Marley Winograd.
