Using CCR's new anthology, Taking Action, Adam Davis presented twice at the Fox Cities Book Festival in Appleton, Wisconsin. The first session--a reading from Taking Action and a presentation introducing the practice of civic reflection--took place at Lawrence University on April 11, 2012. The second session, at the Appleton Public Library on April 12, 2012, engaged community members in a discussion (revolving around Anna Swir's poem, "The Same Inside") about what it means for Appleton to participate in the Compassionate Cities initiative.Edit Back to News & Events
What People Are Saying
The talks we had really helped me to understand that people have all different kinds of opinions and experiences and just because they are different from mine does not make those thoughts wrong. I have learned to be more compassionate and patient with people who hold different beliefs than I do."
