Book Discussion: Rebecca Solnit’s "A Paradise Built in Hell"

Facilitator: 
Jose Luis Sanchez

"A Paradise Built in Hell" is an investigation of the moments of altruism, resourcefulness, and generosity that arise amid disaster's grief and disruption, and considers their implications for everyday life. It points to a new vision of what society could become -- one that is less authoritarian and fearful, more collaborative and local. Writer, historian, and activist Rebecca Solnit is the author of 17 books about art, community, environment, feminism, hope, politics, and other subjects. She is a columnist at Harper's and a regular contributor to The Guardian.
