The Bipartisan Book Group is a group of self-identified liberals and conservatives attempting to bridge the partisan divide by having civilized discussions about controversial topics. Each month, group members read a book about a sensitive political issue – guns, immigration, race, the state of liberal democracy, alienation in America – and share views about the book and relevant personal experiences. Examples of the titles of books read so far include Rising Out of Hatred (Eli Saslow), Melting Pot or Civil War? (Reihan Salam), The Gun Debate (Philip Cook, Kristin Goss), and Alienated America (Timothy Carney).

The goal of the group is not conversion but conversation and understanding. We’re not aiming to determine winners or losers but to create opportunities for people to speak freely with each other over matters about which they disagree. We want to establish a space where people can step outside their echo chambers and engage with, and more fully comprehend, those with differing points of view. We prize respectful engagement on difficult subjects.

The group meets virtually, usually once every 4-6 weeks on Sundays at 4 p.m. To join, please contact Hollis Chen: hollissimo@yahoo.com
