Summary

“A sharp and compelling memoir” of a feminist icon who forged positive change for herself, for women everywhere, and for the world (Rosemary G. Feal, executive director of the Modern Language Association).   Florence Howe has led an audacious life: she created a freedom school during the civil rights movement, refused to bow to academic heavyweights who were opposed to sharing power with women, established women’s studies programs across the country during the early years of the second wave of the feminist movement, and founded a feminist publishing house at a time when books for and about women were a rarity.   Sustained by her relationships with iconic writers like Grace Paley, Tillie Olsen, and Marilyn French, Howe traveled the world as an emissary for women’s empowerment, never ceasing in her personal struggle for parity and absolute freedom for all women.   Howe’s “long-awaited memoir” spans her ninety years of personal struggle and professional triumphs in “a tale told with startling honesty by one of the founding figures of the US feminist movement, giving us the treasures of a history that might otherwise have been lost” (Meena Alexander, author of Fault Lines).

    The Tyranny of Merit: What's Become of the Common Good? by Michael J. Sandel: Conversation Starters
    
    The Tyranny of Merit is Sandel's latest work where he directs us to an unusual yet optimistic political perspective aimed to achieve more positive governance for the common good. Sandel aspires for a new political system geared towards a more hopeful society. He reveals that in moving forward and overcoming the barriers capsizing our times, we must modify our views on what it means to succeed and what failure entails. Sandel suggests a shift in our paradigms of thinking. In the conquest for a re-engineered politics and economy, he offers alternative actions with great emphasis on the virtue of humility, the function of luck, and the paramount importance of the dignity of work.
