Join us for Reading Upwards! A book group about living, meaning, and belonging in perilous times.

Join us for Reading Upwards! A book group about living, meaning, and belonging in perilous times. We meet the first Wednesday of the month at 6:30 p.m.  You don’t have to read the entire book to attend! Spend some time with it, see what speaks to you and what doesn’t, and come share your thoughts. Books can be checked out by any Upper Valley resident.  

We will discuss The Art of Gathering: Why We Meet and Why it Matters by Priya Parker.

"Social gatherings can also be lost opportunities. Some planners focus on logistics with Martha Stewart-like attention to detail. Yet they fail to consider how to inspire attendees to interact in a meaningful, memorable way. Priya Parker has come to the rescue with her fine book The Art of Gathering: How We Meet and Why It Matters. This is not a tome on etiquette. It’s a practical guide for anyone from the business executive to the conflict-resolution specialist to the dinner party host." -Forbes
