Event Series Event Series: World Affairs Book Club

World Affairs Book Club

May 16 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 pm

Curious about the complex currents shaping our world? Yearning to engage in meaningful discussions about global issues? Join the World Affairs Book Club, where passionate readers and engaged citizens delve into thought-provoking books that illuminate international politics, economics, and culture. Dive into the latest bestseller on climate change, dissect a historical analysis of a global conflict, or explore the social fabric of a distant land – all through the lens of engaging literature.  Vibrant group discussions foster understanding, challenge perspectives, and spark lively debate. Open to all, regardless of background or expertise, the World Affairs Book Club is a welcoming space to learn, connect, and become more informed global citizens.

Books to be discussed can be placed on hold through the North Carolina Cardinal system and will be delivered to the Transylvania County Library for you to check out.  The group meets from 10:00 am to 11:30 on the third Thursday of most months in the Connestee Conference Room on the second floor of the Library (except when the Library is closed).

So, pick up a book, grab a coffee, and start a journey to explore the world, one chapter at a time!  Upcoming books for discussion:

May 16:      Chip War: the Fight for the World’s Most Critical Technology by Chris Miller

June 20:     Africa is Not A Country by Dipo Faloyin

July 18:     The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver

August 15:     The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseni

September 19:     Age of Revolutions by Fareed Zakaria
