      EVENT DETAILS
      State of the Union book club with Jaweed Kaleem

      It's hard to keep up with what's happening in the country, much less drill down for a thorough understanding of issues. Don't get overwhelmed by our strange times; get informed. This club reads the best new books across a range of relevant topics. If you've read things like The New Jim Crow, Dark Money, or The View from Flyover Country, this is your book club.  In March, we're reading The Making of a Dream from Laura Wides-Muñoz. This is the sweeping story of the DREAM Act, DACA, and - most importantly - the young people who fight to stay in the only country they've ever called home.     HOW IT WORKS: All book clubs require a ticket, and include the book, snacks/bevs, and a dedicated moderator - to keep the discussion on track! All clubs meet at The Last Bookstore. You can get your ticket one of two ways: either thru the link on this page (*we'll ship the book to you!) - OR buy your ticket in the store, just look for our book club display (near the book tunnel). *If you choose the on-line option (the one with shipping), please send a mailing addy to larkin.lastbookstore@gmail.com -- Do not try to pick up the book in person.   Jaweed Kaleem is the national race and justice correspondent at the Los Angeles Times, where he writes about how race and ethnicity shape our evolving understanding of what it means to be American. He frequently reports on policing, civil rights, immigration, prisons and religion, among other subjects. Before joining The Times, Kaleem was the senior religion reporter at HuffPost for five years. From 2007-11, he was a reporter for the Miami Herald. He was on the team that was a Pulitzer Prize finalist for covering the Haiti earthquake for the Miami Herald and is on the board of the Religion News Foundation. He attended Emerson College in Boston and grew up in Northern Virginia.
