Join the Tufts Alumni Virtual Book Club!

February 21, 2017

In today’s tense political climate, we hear a lot about Americans on both sides of the aisle living in an “echo chamber,” surrounded only by those who share their views.

How did the country become so polarized? Has it always been this way?

Join the Tufts Alumni Virtual Book Club in reading and discussing American Nations: A History of the Eleven Rival Regional Cultures of North America by Colin Woodard, A91. This book defines 11 distinct nations with their own social, political, and cultural norms, all residing under the banner of the stars and stripes.

You will be able to use the new Online Community to post questions, make comments, and engage with other Jumbos no matter where you are! The book club will run April 3–28.
