In the June Issue:
- Don’t miss your chance to hear Sam Horn, former executive director of the Maui Writers Conference (named “Best Writers Conference in the World” by Writers Digest), who will be guest speaker for the CHV Memoirs Affinity Group at 1:00 p.m. on Thursday, June 24 (via Zoom). See page 1.
- The Capitol Hill Village Literary Club has chosen the 10 books that will be discussed during the upcoming year. The Club alternates fiction and non-fiction, and also devotes a meeting to poetry. New Literary Club participants are invited; some Village members attend regularly, and others attend when they want to read the assigned book. See page 5.
- On June 3, the Capitol Hill Village Antiracist Reading Group had its final discussion of The Sum of Us: What Racism Costs Everyone and How We Can Prosper Together. Author Heather McGhee’s central thesis is that society should be a cooperative project, not a zero-sum game. The group agreed to read over the summer White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk about Racism, by Robin DiAngelo, and to discuss the book when we meet in late September. See page 6.
