Although the book study won’t start until April, you might try to get your copy of the book now, since This Changes Everything is on back order at the publisher.  We encourage you to order through our local book dealers:  The Book Seller (272-2131) or Harmony Books (265-9564).

(Harmony Books gives 10% off for book club books) 

 Once you have the book, start reading!  If you take your time it will be easier to assimilate the book’s complex ideas, and we start with a bang.   The first two sessions are just one week apart, with approximately 100 pages assigned for each session.   We’ll begin each session with a presentation on the chapters we have read, followed by sharing in small groups, then joining together for a final group discussion and close.
