The Kettering Foundation is offering a limited number of copies of its newest book The Ecology of Democracy: Finding Ways to Have a Stronger Hand in Shaping Our Future to all libraries interested in hosting book discussion groups or other community conversations. A series of questions to facilitate these conversations is also available.  

To read insights others have drawn from the book and participate in conversations with people who are ready to put the ideas into practice in their own communities, visit www.ecologyofdemocracy.org and watch a video presentation by the author, David Mathews, President of the Kettering Foundation.

A press release, book description, book postcard, and sample questions are attached.  

This is a wonderful opportunity for libraries to participate in discussions about the future of our democracy with concerned citizens in their communities.  The effort is co-sponsored by the American Library Association Center for Civic Life and the National Coalition on Dialogue and Deliberation.
