    Hi —

    Can you update please— do we have a specific book or topic for discussion?

    I don’t know why but I only receive the date— and mostly no time and no Zoom link.

    Thanks for your help.

    Hello!
    The prompt we talked about was “social justice.” Everyone choose and share their own title.
    Looking forward to it,
