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 will meet at 1:00 PM 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.

This is a new SIG that has formed as a result of a Beginner Ukulele class that was presented on the Seacoast. The SIG will take place on the fourth Friday of the month at GSC Portsmouth at 10:00 AM. Please contact Nan Nutt at email@example.com to check on availability of space in the group. Group members must provide their own ukuleles.
