Randy Bell will visit City Lights Bookstore on Friday, October 26th at 6:30 p.m. He will present his book, Conversations with America: Confronting the Divisive Challenges of Our Time. In this series of essays, author Randy Bell raises questions about what it means to be an American in the early 21st century. Covering a range of issues from government and its responsibility to its people, international relations, the economy and business, religion, discrimination, and human rights, Bell makes a case for reasoned conversation and the rejection of knee-jerk responses to complex challenges.
These essays are intended to provoke critically needed conversations between family, friends, neighbors, colleagues, and political parties. The book is a call for respectful conversations that consist not just of talking, but also listening fully to what others are saying...conversations that help the continual development of each reader’s perspectives and opinions.
