The Great American Lie
Join us at The Engine Room in White River Junction on Thursday, November 14 at 6:30 pm for a special WISE screening of The Great American Lie , the newest documentary by Emmy Award-winning filmmaker and First Partner of California Jennifer Siebel Newsom. We will provide refreshments and context as we watch this film together and make the connections to our work.

The film, which premiered at the San Francisco International Film Festival in April, exposes how social and economic inequality is rooted in our beliefs with the cultural pendulum swinging too far towards revering things we consider “masculine,” like individualism, power, and money, at the expense of things we consider “feminine,” like empathy, care, and collaboration. Check out the official trailer .

This event is free and open to the public.
A WISE book club
 
Join us at the Howe Library on Thursday, November 19 at 6:30 pm for a WISE discussion about Big Little Lies , by Liane Moriarty. 

Pick up a copy at the Library or bring your own and spend the evening with us. We will provide snacks and refreshments. Email us for more information.
