Power of the Press

May 3 has been designated as World Press Freedom Day in recognition of a "free, pluralistic and independent press" and its essential part of a democratic society. Indeed, the purpose of journalism, said Chicago newspaper columnist and humorist Peter Finley Dunne in the early 1900s, is to "comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable." Although modern journalists have often been the targets of severe criticism, it is also true that throughout the centuries, and even today, journalism has been a force for making America a better place to live.

Lunch & a Book May 2014

On Thursday, May 8 at noon, we will be discussing:

The round house by Louise Erdrich — In the spring of 1988, a woman living on a reservation in North Dakota is attacked. Geraldine Coutts is traumatized and reluctant to reveal what happened, either to the police or to her husband, Bazil, and thirteen-year-old son, Joe. Joe tries to heal his mother, but she will not leave her bed and slips into an abyss of solitude. While his father, who is a tribal judge, tries to wrest justice from a situation that defies his efforts, Joe sets out with his trusted friends, Cappy, Zack, and Angus, to get some answers of his own. Their quest takes them first to the Round House, a sacred space and place of worship for the Ojibwe. And this is only the beginning.
