Common Read Book
This year our "common read" book is The Third Reconstruction: Moral Mondays, Fusion Politics, and the Rise of a New Justice Movement, by The Rev. Dr. William Barber II and Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove (Beacon, 2016). Rev. Barber electrified Unitarian Universalists at General Assembly this year with his call for building and sustaining a movement for justice for all people. The Third Reconstruction offers helpful, practical guidance for engaging with justice movements born in response to local experiences of larger injustices. Available at the UUA Bookstore.
