ONC Reading and Discussion Group
January 12 from 8:30-10am

The next meeting of the Old North Reading and Discussion Group on Preserving Our Democracy and Environment will be on Wednesday, January 12th, from 8:30 to 10:00 AM. This is the latest of a series of meetings on this subject that have been hosted for all by the ONC Men’s Group. The discussions are supported by background reading assignments. You are invited to participate regardless of the amount of your preparation or whether you have attended a previous meeting. At this meeting we will be discussing Fiona Hill’s new book, There is Nothing for You Here: Finding Opportunity in the Twenty-First Century. (The previously scheduled meeting on this topic was postponed because of an accident.) We will also continue discussing the results of our individual efforts to influence points of view of people we disagree with.
The meeting will be privately hosted on Zoom. Those who have completed their maximal COVID-19 vaccinations and are willing to wear a mask will be able to attend in person in the “Great Room” of the ONC office at 8 Stacey Street. To join the Zoom meeting, just click on
