Nonfiction Book Group with Geo discusses All About Love: New Visions
Led (virtually!) by Greenlight bookseller Geo, our nonfiction book group reads and discusses the most fascinating topics in nonfiction, both classic and contemporary, with seasonal themes covering a variety of genres. For October, the group discusses the acclaimed first volume in feminist icon bell hooks' "Love Song to the Nation,” All About Love. Here, at her most provocative and intensely personal, renowned scholar, cultural critic and feminist bell hooks offers a proactive new ethic for a society bereft with lovelessness—not the lack of romance, but the lack of care, compassion, and unity. People are divided, she declares, by society’s failure to provide a model for learning to love. Razing the cultural paradigm that the ideal love is infused with sex and desire, she provides a new path to love that is sacred, redemptive, and healing for individuals and for a nation. All About Love is a powerful, timely affirmation of just how profoundly her revelations can change hearts and minds for the better.
