One Book One Marin 2018 is in full swing! Come share your thoughts with fellow readers at one of our facilitated book discussions on this year’s selection, Strangers in Their Own Land by Arlie Hochschild. All are welcome!
About the book: In Strangers In Their Own Land: Anger and Mourning of the American Right, UC Berkeley professor Arlie Hochschild describes her five-year study interviewing Tea Party members in Louisiana about their lives, beliefs, and politics. The book examines the “empathy walls” that have developed between conservatives and liberals, and also casts a light on Louisiana’s devastating environmental degradation. Above all, Hochschild’s book addresses what it means to have empathy in our modern lives, and how important it is to understand and respect ways of life which differ from our own.
