Third Thursday Book Discussion: How Minds Change (UW Go Big Read selection 2023-24)

Meeting Room B
Thursday, Sep 21, 2:00pm to 3:00pm

Join us for a discussion of this month's book, the UW Go Big Read title for this year, How Minds Change: The Surprising Science of Belief, Opinion, and Persuasion by David McRaney. New members always welcome!

Bridging emergent research in psychology and neuroscience with conversations among political activists, cult members, and conspiracy theorists, How Minds Change interrogates the mechanisms that determine personal and collective opinion and belief. David McRaney condenses dense scientific research into useful, ethical techniques for anyone interested in not just how we come to form beliefs, but why we come to identify ourselves with particular schools of thought. How Minds Change suggests that transformation is not just possible, but necessary as we strive towards meaningful connection in divisive times.

Books should be available for checkout at the library 4 weeks prior to the discussions.
