|Democracy in the Making - Book Talk & Signing|
|Sunday January 13, 2013|
|2:30 PM to 4:00 PM|
Arthur S. Meyers, Director of Russell Library in Middletown, will discuss his recently published book Democracy in the Making: The Open Forum Lecture Movement on Sunday, January 13 at 2:30 pm in the Hubbard Room at Russell Library, 123 Broad Street, Middletown. In 1908 a remarkable direction in community learning began in Boston and spread across the country, becoming the Open Forum Lecture Movement. These locally planned, transdenominational lectures, followed by periods for questions, were characterized as “the striking of mind upon mind.” Meyers book explains how this initiative broadens our awareness of personal and community courage and democratic planning. Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing.
