No is Not Enough
What: Discussion of No Is Not Enough: Resisting Trumps Shock Politics and Winning the World We Need
Where: Uncharted Books, 2620 N. Milwaukee Ave. Chicago, IL
When: Monday Nov. 6th at 6:30 p.m.
Join Rising Tide Chicago for a discussion of part of Naomi Klein’s new book No is Not Enough: Resisting Trumps Shock Politics and Winning the World We Need.
Here is a short description from the book website, “Acclaimed journalist, activist, and bestselling author Naomi Klein has spent two decades studying political shocks, climate change, and “brand bullies.” From this unique perspective, she argues that Trump is not an aberration but a logical extension of the worst, most dangerous trends of the past half-century—the very conditions that have unleashed a rising tide of white nationalism the world over. It is not enough, she tells us, to merely resist, to say “no.” Our historical moment demands more: a credible and inspiring “yes,” a roadmap to reclaiming the populist ground from those who would divide us – one that sets a bold course for winning the fair and caring world we want and need.”
During this first meeting, we’ll discuss pages 1-83 or the first four chapters. 83 pages might sounds like a lot to read, but this book is a page turner and an easy read (in comparison to some of her other books). If you can’t afford to buy the book, but want to come to the event email Rising Tide Chicago at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll hook you up.
If there are enough people at this initial meeting that want to continue reading the book together, we will pick a future date to meet at this meeting.
