Join us as Randy Mayeux presents the key content of a selected book each month, with a comprehensive handout of key quotes and key ideas from the book.

Then, in conversation with a diverse group of fellow participants, we discuss the implications of the book.


Urban Engagement Book Club meetings help our team and our community stay aware and in touch with the ongoing struggle and conversation around poverty in our community and country.
