Once again this year, the Wisconsin Humanities Council is sponsoring a statewide discussion series entitled, A More Perfect Union: To Establish Justice.
From the web site:
This year’s A More Perfect Union theme, To Establish Justice, once again comes from the Preamble to the U.S. Constitution. The phrase reminds us of our early founders’ commitment to a fair and accessible legal system, but also raises relevant questions about the roles both elected officials and common citizens must play in the quest to bring about the oft-mentioned but painfully elusive American ideal of “justice for all.”
Discussion items include:
- A Civil Action by Jonathan Harr
- Bombingham by Anthony Grooms
- For God And Country: Faith and Patriotism Under Fire by James Yee and Aimee Molloy
- Sex Wars : A Novel of the Turbulent Post-Civil War Period by Marge Piercy
- Red Hook Justice, a film by Meema Spadola
The Wisconsin Humanities Council offers a “pre-packaged” DISCUSSION KIT for libraries, book clubs, campus and school groups, UW-Extension programs, or any not-for-profit or ad-hoc group.
