BOOK CLUB THEME: THIS MOMENT

Every generation has probably believed, justifiably or not, that its time was uniquely momentous in human history. We’re no different. But perhaps our generation’s claim to occupying a historic turning point stands on firmer ground. For the first time, humans have the power to end history, perhaps much of life. Climate change, engineered pandemics, unfettered AI, and nuclear holocaust are among the existential risks. What are the choices before us? How do we attend to them? Every choice is a moral one. 

The purpose of this book club is to engage with voices that speak to this moment. These voices can and should come from any source across time and space. They can take the form of prose, poetry, music, art, film, and dance. Hence, more than a book club, a book and media club.
