This discussion has been rescheduled to accommodate the candidate forum in Hermon on May 9th.
Join the Bangor League for a discussion of Wildland: the Making of America's Fury by Evan Osnos.
Reported over the course of six years, Wildland follows ordinary individuals as they navigate the varied landscapes of twenty-first-century America. Through their powerful, often poignant stories, Osnos traces the sources of America’s political dissolution. He finds answers in the rightward shift of the financial elite in Greenwich, in the collapse of social infrastructure and possibility in Clarksburg, and in the compounded effects of segregation and violence in Chicago. The truth about the state of the nation may be found not in the slogans of political leaders but in the intricate details of individual lives, and in the hidden connections between them.
The book group meets at Seasons restaurant in Bangor. If you would like to join by Zoom, please email Lane at firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
