Memphis Community Development Book Club - The Alternative: Part II

A community that reads together, grows together. Readers, practitioners, and interested community members gather to not only read books but to also share how Memphis can benefit from the lessons granted from each reading.

His simple solution is to invest in people’s demonstrated strengths, rather than weaknesses.
