Crossing Party Lines: Portland, OR
Come learn more about our Summer BOOK CLUB selection:
“The Coddling of the American Mind” by Greg Lukianoff and Jonathan Haidt
(How Good Intentions and Bad Ideas Are Setting Up a Generation for Failure)
Lukianoff and Haidt argue that something has been going wrong on many college campuses in the last few years. Speakers are shouted down. Students and professors say they are walking on eggshells and are afraid to speak honestly. Rates of anxiety, depression, and suicide are rising—on campus as well as nationally. What is going on?
About the CPL BOOK CLUB
Discover the books people are reading to cross party lines.
As much as we might love other media forms, it’s reading good books that best helps us understand the world. Extended prose is the most effective way to communicate complex ideas. That makes sharing a book with friends such a rich and rewarding experience — especially when we see things differently.
Introducing the CPL BOOK CLUB: a space to discover the joys of reading with others who want to bridge our differences and explore issues that divide us. Each month we take up a book that provides a platform for warm and engaging conversation. Participants receive a brief primer that introduces the author and lays out the book’s main points to fuel our thinking and energize engagement.
