The goal of the book club is to learn about creating positive change in our community by sharing books that offer innovative solutions to common problems. The first book we will read is "Community: The Structure of Belonging" by Peter Block. This book is described as: "an exploration of the exact way a community can emerge from fragmentation. How is community built? How does transformation occur? What fundamental shifts are involved? What can individuals and leaders do to create a place they want to inhabit?"
You can read the reviews of Community: The Structure of Belonging at http://www.librarything.com/work/5501534/reviews/67135477. The McBride and District Library will order a copy of the book for each person in the book club. A date, time and location for the book discussion will be decided once the group is formed.
