The January book selection is A Paradise Built in Hell: The Extraordinary Communities That Arise in Disaster
by Rebecca Solnit
A Paradise Built in Hell is an investigation of the moments of altruism, resourcefulness, and generosity that arise amid disaster’s grief and disruption and considers their implications for everyday life. It points to a new vision of what society could become – one that is less authoritarian and fearful, more collaborative and local.
