YNPN - Houston, Brazos Bookstore, and partners present:

SUMMER READING
Our Lives | Our Calling | Our Books

Many of us who work in nonprofits and public service have found love for the mission in books. Whether they open our eyes to an issue, galvanize us to fight on, or beautifully illustrate a problem or solution, books about our work have enormous power to inform and inspire.

This summer, YNPN-Houston invites you to join us for some summer reading. In three events this summer, we’ll explore three incredible books as a means to reconnect with the poverty and social justice issues that move us and learn about Houston-area nonprofits that are also working on this issue.

Unlike a traditional book club, you don’t need to read the book in advance – though you certainly may! We encourage you to read what you can, whether it’s the focus book, related articles and videos, other books on the topic, or nothing at all. Come prepared to hear inspiring passages, share your own passion for the work, and learn how your fellow nonprofiteers are working for a better future. (Like a traditional book club, however, we’ll bring the wine!)

This graphic novel coauthored by Congressman and legendary activist John Lewis recounts his experience in the civil rights movement of the 1960’s – a fight too often dismissed as over.
