Book Club: A Fair Country by John Ralston Saul

To get an idea of what the 5 January 2016 book club selection is about, you could do worse than ponder this quote from an anonymous review in the Globe and Mail: "What a relief it is to read something so observant about Canada. Here we are in the throes of an election, when ideas about our history and identity should matter enormously, but you will find no such acknowledgment in the discourse of our politicians. They would do well to read this book. They would learn, for instance, that the contempt our governing lot has shown toward the previous idea Canadians had of the country - as a fair, multicultural and peacekeeping one - even as they demonstrate a craven deference toward the military and economic imperatives of the United States, is a symptom of minds still, in effect, colonized." 

Unless otherwise noted, the BC Humanist book club will be held on the first Tuesday of every month at a members home. Please suggest books for upcoming months and invite anyone who may be interested.

Most books are available at the Vancouver Public Library or local book stores or through the BC Humanist Association.
