Reading for Change: Making a Difference with Jamil Zaki

Thursday, November 18, 2021, 6:00 pm until 7:00 pm

Meet The War for Kindness author Jamil Zaki and discuss the book on Zoom. Strategize with fellow readers on ways to spread empathy and kindness in our community.

This fall, Greenfield Public Library, in collaboration with Greenfield Community College and Greenfield High School, has been participating in the community-reading project "Reading for Change." Together we are reading 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.

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.
