Join us at Finnriver for a reading group on Susan Raffo's book: Liberated to the Bone: Histories. Bodies. Futures. Published in the Emergent Strategy Series by AK Press.
“Being liberated to the bone means not only being liberated to the center, to the place of holding, protection, and structure, but also liberated across time, to the beginning places, the moments when all children and elders were safe, and even before then, to the time when the stars exhaled, releasing the smallest part of themselves to float through space, eventually landing as the seeds that nourished life, on this land, now and also back and forth across time."
First session will be Monday, May 8th, 5:30pm on Section 1 of the book:
Setting the Conversation, pages 1-41.
This will be a 4 month reading series, one month for each section of the 4 segments of the book. We will meet second Mondays of the month from 5:30-7pm at Finnriver.
That would be:
NOTE: Finnriver is not open to the public on Mondays in early May, so you can bring your own food or snacks. Feel free to invite friends or neighbors. Support local bookstores and libraries in obtaining the book.
Donations for the series are encouraged for the Longhouse for the People project: https://www.patreon.com/LonghouseforthePeople
Feel free to drop in and out as your availability allows but we hope for some continuity throughout the conversation. This is an important offering in the collective journey towards healing justice and I am delighted at the thought of reading it in community! And who knows, maybe Susan will be able to visit with us again on her next visit...
