Book Club: "Talking to Strangers" by Malcolm Gladwell

Do you love to talk about what you’re reading? Join a book club to share your thoughts and hear what others have to say about books that spark discussion, curiosity, and debate!

Join the discussion as we go over Malcolm Gladwell's  Talking to Strangers: What We Should Know About the People We Don't Know.

Gladwell aims to figure out the strategies people use to assess strangers-to "analyze, critique them, figure out where they came from, figure out how to fix them," in other words: to understand how to balance trust and safety. He uses a variety of examples from history and recent headlines to illustrate that people size up the motivations, emotions, and trustworthiness of those they don't know both wrongly and with misplaced confidence.


After a year of Zooming, we will meet outside on the plaza to discuss our summer reads. NOTE: this event may move online depending on
