A nine-month series of community conversations based on the anthology The Impossible Will Take a Little While, edited by Paul Rogat Loeb.
Teaching, by example, how to work toward a more humane world, renew commitment and persevere.
Author of the best-selling, Soul of a Citizen, Paul Loeb has spent 40 years researching and writing about citizen responsibility and empowerment–asking what makes some people choose lives of social commitment, while others abstain. He’s written for the New York Times, Washington Post and USA Today.
