Next XR Nottingham book club meeting

February 19 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

XR Nottingham Book Club will be reading and discussing Hope in the Dark by Rebecca Solnit.

Next meeting: Monday 19 February
7 – 9pm @ Mammoth Cinema

This meeting will be to discuss our thoughts after reading the book.

A bit more about the book: With Hope in the Dark, Rebecca Solnit makes a radical case for hope as a commitment to act in a world whose future remains uncertain and unknowable. Drawing on her decades of activism and a wide reading of environmental, cultural, and political history, Solnit argues that radicals have a long, neglected history of transformative victories, that the positive consequences of our acts are not always immediately seen, directly knowable, or even measurable, and that pessimism and despair rest on an unwarranted confidence about what is going to happen next.
