For over 50 years Chris and Signe Schaefer have been discussing and working for social change. Their ongoing conversation—on whether change happens through systemic and structural transformation, through individual development, or is reliant on both—is reflected in their two new books:
This November, join the Schaefers for an evening of dialogue about human development, social transformation, and the struggles of our times, with short readings from their new books.
Friday evening, November 22, at 7:30pm in Upper Brookside
This event is free and open to the public.
(Also check out Chris’s workshop the following Saturday morning.)
