DIG WHERE YOU ARE
BY NAN ALEXANDER DOYAL
VIRTUAL READING GROUP
The Center for the Study of Liberty brought together a group of participants from around the country for an extended discussion about how individuals can change their communities for the better.
Group members read and reflected on Nan Alexander Doyal's book Dig Where You Are over the course of 4 weeks. In Dig Where You Are, Doyal offers portraits and interviews with change-makers all over the world, including Narayana Health's Dr. Devi Shetty and Delancey Street's Mimi Silbert.
Participants joined live discussion sessions in Zoom video conferences each week to discuss the stories and principles outlined in the book. They asked questions such as: What is charity? Do we need to be altruistic people to make a real difference in the world? How do we determine which challenges or problems to address in our communities? What is a "business with a social purpose" and why is sustainability important?
The conversation was moderated by Center executive director Jennifer Thompson.
