Reading for Change: Making Connections

Reading for Change: Making Connections

Thursday, October 21, 6:00 pm
Online

This fall, Greenfield Public Library, in collaboration with Greenfield Community College and Greenfield High School, is participating in the community-reading project "Reading for Change." Together we will read Jamil Zaki's groundbreaking book: The War for Kindness: Building Empathy in a Fractured World.

In The War for KIndness, Zaki describes research-informed strategies for increasing kindness and empathy in a world characterized by racial inequality, political polarization and decreasing trust in social institutions.

Join us for a panel discussion, on Thursday, October 21, at 6 pm, with local experts on empathy work in a variety of settings including criminal justice, education and health care. This event will cover chapters 4-6 of The War for Kindness.

Copies of the book are available at the Greenfield Public Library.

This program, with the help of the Friends of the Greenfield Public Library, is free and open to the public.
