Booked: Cleveland's arts and culture reading exchange is a new idea from CPAC to get arts and culture professionals together and talking. Every other month, CPAC is hosting this discussion group focused on works of nonfiction by thought leaders within, and outside of, the arts and culture field. One month it might focus on innovation, another month it might focus on advocacy or marketing.
This month we are focusing on Soul of a Citizen: Living with Conviction in Challenging Times; Second Edition, Revised and Updated by Paul Rogat Loeb. Soul of a Citizen has become the handbook for budding social activists, veteran organizers, and anybody who wants to make a change—big or small—in the world around them. At this critical historical time, this new edition—and Paul Loeb's inspiring message—are more urgently important than ever. Completely revised with new profiles, updated political discussion, and exploration of emerging social technologies, Soul of a Citizen is an inspiring new edition for a new world. Soul of a Citizen is available for purchase online and in print. View availability.
