On March 8, 2012, the Great Books Foundation held a book launch event to celebrate the release of Taking Action, the new anthology for Civic Reflection edited by Adam Davis, Director of the Center for Civic Reflection. The event was held at the beautiful space at the Poetry Foundation. Over a hundred friends and supporters of the Center for Civic Reflection attended the event. The anthology is now available on the Great Books Foundation website. Please check it out!
Taking Action is especially designed for discussion groups and staff development programs in a wide range of service-oriented organizations. Fifty-five short readings—essays, stories, and poetry—and six visual images provide the perfect material for group sessions of educators, social workers, community organizers, medical and law enforcement personnel, and discussion groups of all kinds. These provocative readings will prompt lively, reflective discussions about the convictions, assumptions, and challenges of those who work to make the world a better place.Edit Back to News & Events
