Event: Book launch- Saturday, November 19th 4:00-6:00 pm at More Than Words Bookstore for On Belonging: Finding Connection in an Age of Isolation (Abrams Press).
Kim Samuel is the founder of the Samuel Centre for Social Connectedness, Fulbright Canada Ambassador for diversity and social connectedness, and Visiting Scholar at the Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative. She will be launching her new book On Belonging: Finding Connection in an Age of Isolation (Abrams Press).
In an age of social, economic, and ecological disconnection, what does it mean to belong? On Belonging: Finding Connection in an Age of Isolation is an exploration of the crisis of social isolation and of the fundamental human right to belong. It considers belonging across four core dimensions: in our relationships with other people, in our rootedness in nature, in our ability to influence political and economic decision-making, and in our finding of meaning and purpose in our lives, with lessons on how to create communities centered on human connection. Publishers Weekly says: "This compassionate journalistic treatise on building more inclusive communities hits the mark.” Samuel will be available to sign books after a Q&A.
