Dear America Book-Club Discussions

These discussions will be excellent opportunities through which to share your thoughts about the book and Vargas' experiences and insights with your peers — while making important connections between the themes raised in this book and the historical moment in which we find ourselves. It is also an opportunity for you to gain a brief insight to a college-level classroom discussion. Each discussion will focus on a specific topic.

You are free to sign up for as many as you wish. I know the discussion leaders are really looking forward to both sharing their thoughts about the book and hearing your insights. All times are based on Eastern Daylight Time.
