Book study group: ‘Daring Democracy’

A new book group will hold a discussion on the work Daring Democracy: Igniting Power, Meaning, and Connection for the America We Want by Francis Lappe and Adam Eichen.

Discussions will be on three Sunday afternoons: Jan. 21, Feb. 4 and Feb 18. This free community program will begin at 1 p.m. at the UU Fellowship on 85 Sierra Lane in Franklin.

Democracy is not just a description of our government, it is a way of life we all can and must participate in to be effective. Complaining does not foster change. Voicing our opinions in constructive ways, selecting leaders who represent our interests, and participating in decision making processes are all part of the democratic process.

All are welcome. Register in case they need to reschedule for weather: 828.524.3691 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..">This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
