PBC - The book for January 30, 2023 is Why We Did It: A Travelogue from the
Republican Road to Hell by Tim Miller (June 2022, 288 pages) The author conducts his
own forensic study of the party he used to love revealing the hubris, ambition, idiocy,
desperation, and self-deception. From ruminations on the mental jujitsu that allowed him
as a gay man to justify becoming a hitman for homophobes to astonishingly raw
interviews with former colleagues, Miller details the flattering and delusional stories
operatives tell themselves.
The only requirement to join the book club discussion is that each participant has read
the book. The standard format consists of each person giving a brief (1-2 minute)
statement concerning the book’s overall impressions and implications. This segment is
followed by group questions and discussions of the material. If you would like to join the
book club, or want to submit the title of books you are interested in reading and
discussing, or if you would like any other information about the book club, please
contact .
LTP: At 4:15 pm, those who have not read the book can join the group to share
thoughts, concerns, insights, and predilections about current political and societal
events. As one member stated, we can talk about “those issues which keep you awake
at night.” Everyone has a chance to speak, while we all listen. Topics for discussion
usually evolve from the group concerns. Whatever your political persuasion, you are
welcome to join this accepting and respectful group.
