Maybe the election ate your brain last night. It's okay! It happens. But after a night of nitty-gritty election watching, it helps to take a step back and absorb a big-picture view. And the pictures don't get much bigger than Yuval Noah Harari's book Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind. This book is beloved by thinkers ranging from Barack Obama to Bill Gates, and it's reshaping the way we talk about human behavior.

Tonight at Third Place Books Seward Park, we'll be discussing Sapiens as part of our regular Reading Through It Book Club. The conversation starts at 7 pm. No purchase is necessary. This should be a great way to reframe our goals in the next two years as we prepare to take the country back from regressive forces. I hope you'll join us.
