2014 Two Towns–One Book

Price of paradise

We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny.  Whatever affects one directly, affects all.”  Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

How does “mutuality” apply to South Orange/Maplewood, Newark and other towns?  Let’s explore this question and others using David Troutt’s provocative book, The Price of Paradise: The Costs of Inequality and a Vision for a More Equitable America and talk about it as a community.

Wednesday, November 19th 7:30 p.m. at The Woodland, 60 Woodland Road, Maplewood
