One Book, One Community Reading

The book selected for 2010-2011 is "Hot, Flat, and Crowded: Why We Need a Green Revolution - And How it Can Renew America." The "hot" is global warming; the "flat" is the rise of the middle class; and "crowded" refers to the growing population around the globe. These three mega concerns are explored in this extraordinary best seller by its Pulitzer Prize winning journalist/author Thomas L. Friedman. Read it, think about it, and talk about it with fellow citizens in a discussion session.

Book discussions were held in November and December of 2010; two more are scheduled for the upcoming months. On Thursday, January 27, Leta Stagnaro, Associate Vice President, Newark Center for Health Sciences and Technology will lead a discussion at Ohlone College, Newark campus from 3:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. and Florence Silver, AAUW member and Evening Literature Chair, will conduct the last meeting on Tuesday, February 22, from 7 p.m. - 8 p.m. at Temple Beth Torah in Fremont. All discussions are free and open to the public; you do not have to read the book to attend.

One Book, One Community Reading is a community action project led by American Association of University Women Fremont Branch (AAUW) in collaboration with Fremont Main Library, City of Fremont, and Fremont Unified School District. For more information visit www.aauwfremontbranch.org/onebook.html, e-mail president@aauw-fremontbranch.org, or call the AAUW message phone at (510) 728-9700.
