Winter Read begins today in Clallam County

The 2020 Community Winter Read in Clallam County begins today.

“Active Hope: How to Face the Mess We’re In Without Going Crazy,” by Joanna Macy and Chris Johnstone will be studied this year, which marks the fourth Winter Read organized by The Interfaith Community in Clallam County and Compassion Clallam County.

“We’ll discuss how to bring our best selves to addressing the crisis of sustainability and the social and economic challenges unfolding in today’s world,” organizers said.

Book groups will meet for eight or 10 weeks, gathering in libraries in Sequim and Port Angeles, at the North Olympic Land Trust office and at other meeting spaces and private homes across Clallam County. At the end in March will be a Celebration of the Journey, to discuss what’s next.

RSVPs to groups are preferred by emailing [email protected] or calling Marilyn Eash at 360-477-0681, but if needed, participants can just show up.
