Join us for an open conversation about the books we are reading during our
shelter-in-place sojourn. What book has most resonated with you during this
unprecedented time, and why? Share with others what you are enjoying and
what you are taking away from the text. Reading and sharing what's valuable
on the page can help us cope with--and deepen our grasp of-- the challenges
we face in this difficult historical period. Help us buoy spirits as well
as build shields for future battles. Our First S&S Social Hour!
