PBC - For June 26, 2023, the selection, is The Scheme: How the Right Wing Used Dark Money toCapture the Supreme Court, by Sheldon Whitehouse and Jennifer Mueller (October 2022, 256 pages) Facilitator will be Gail Digate.
This book offers readers a front-row seat, full of unique insights and inside stories, showing how
and why the U.S. Senate broke rules, norms and precedents to confirm wildly inappropriate
nominees – nominees selected to advance the anti-government agenda of a small number of
corporate oligarchs instead of the constitutional rights of We The People. It pulls back the
curtain on a powerful and hidden apparatus that has spent years trying to corrupt our politics, control our courts, and degrade our democracy.

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.
