Book Club: Year of the Pilgrim!

This bookclub has been the highlight of my Brookings intellectual life. The meetings and discussions have been so varied in theme, content and levels of laughter and tears. They just published the books for this upcoming year, and I got to choose and write the reflection and study questions for one of them. Through common friends, I was able to interview the author!
