Based on feedback from last year's MNEA Book Club, we'll be hosting a book club again this year.

Please make sure you can commit to both Book Club meetings:

  • Thursday, June 30: 12:00-1:00pm: Book Club meeting 1 (to prepare read the Introduction and chapters 1-6)
  • Thursday, July 21: 12:00-1:00pm: Book Club meeting 2 (to prepare read chapters 7-13)

Register today as we will be limiting the book club sign-up to 30 participants!

We will be reading and discussing bell hooks’ All About Love: New Visions. As described on Amazon, "The word 'love' is most often defined as a noun, yet we would all love better if we used it as a verb," writes bell hooks as she comes out fighting and on fire in All About Love. Here, at her most provocative and intensely personal, renowned scholar, cultural critic and feminist bell hooks offers a proactive new ethic for a society bereft with lovelessness--not the lack of romance, but the lack of care, compassion, and unity. People are divided, she declares, by society's failure to provide a model for learning to love. As bell hooks uses her incisive mind to explore the question "What is love?" her answers strike at both the mind and heart. Razing the cultural paradigm that the ideal love is infused with sex and desire, she provides a new path to love that is sacred, redemptive, and healing for individuals and for a nation."

If you do not own a copy, MNEA can provide you with an e-book or a paperback version.
