The RSVP deadline has passed for this event.


GVSU Pew Campus University Club


How should we encourage participation in public life when neither elections nor protests feel like paths to change? Ethan Zuckerman, in his new book, Mistrust: Why Losing Faith in Institutions Provides the Tools to Transform Them , introduces a set of “levers” – laws, markets, codes, and norms, that all provide ways to move the world forward. Mistrust is a guidebook for those aiming to find new ways to participate in civic life. Join the Open Minds Book Club for our first in-person meeting on Wednesday, September 8, from 3-5 PM, on the GVSU Pew Campus.

Join us as we discuss the Open Minds Book Club’s fall book. Participants will engage one another in large group discussion on the book’s core themes. The Open Minds Book Club’s third meeting will be on Wednesday, September 8, at 3 PM, in the GVSU Pew Campus University Club.

Please order or request your copy of Mistrust by Monday, August 23, to allow time for shipping and to enjoy the reading before the discussion. Members of the Hauenstein Center and Grand Valley State University students will receive a free copy with registration.

This event has been tagged as academic, alumni, book, club, and hauenstein.
