Braving the Wilderness Book Discussion

Moon Palace Books, 3032 Minnehaha Ave, Mpls 55406

Brené Brown’s newest book, Braving the Wilderness will be our summer book read!  In Braving the Wilderness, Brown redefines what it means to truly belong in an age of increased polarization. With her trademark mix of research, storytelling, and honesty, Brown will again change the cultural conversation while mapping a clear path to true belonging.  Joining with our “God is Wild” Summer exploration. As we think about God being wild, we’ll think about braving our own wilderness, including thinking of the wilderness of vulnerability. We’ll be discussing what it means to feel that we belong.

Come join us upstairs at Moon Palace Books on Minnehaha for book discussions on the following dates:

June 12th, 7:30-8:30 PM (Chapter 1)

July 10th, 7:30-8:30 PM (Chapters 2-4)

Spend some time with other SGers!

On Wednesday, June 27 we will lead a walking/wheeling tour of part of the Longfellow neighborhood, walking by some of our neighborly points of interest, stopping for ice cream, time in a park, and more. The route will be about 3.5 miles, with breaks. We will have lots of time to chat, take fun pictures, and be out and about in this neighborhood we call home. What might we learn about Longfellow from the sidewalk level? Expect to be out until about 8:15; longer if you want to stop for a drink and food at the end of the walk.
