How Can You Think That?

A Political Book Club

Are you frustrated by the current level of political discussion and the polarization of opinions? 

There must be a better way to discuss politics than what we see on the internet and television or hear in shouting matches between people who disagree with each other.

Our political book club members are interested in  bridging political divides and having intelligent, civilized conversations about why conservatives and liberals often find it hard to meet on common ground.

We are a diverse group of people from a variety of backgrounds and ways of thinking.

Every month,  we feature a new book as our basis for discussion.

When: 4th Tuesday of the month.
Time: 1:00 - 3:00 PM
