Each Tuesday during the legislative session, AARP invites our members to participate in Tuesdays at the State House.

We have selected three books to read and discuss in 2019 to increase our policy proficiency. They are Evicted, by Matthew Desmund (discussion on March 5th), Being Mortal, by Atul Gawande (discussion on April 23rd) and American Sickness, by Elisabeth Rosenthal (discussion on June 11th).

Each book will be provided to T@SH volunteers 6 weeks prior to the discussion, each of which will be held in the Maine State Library Conference Room (The Studio) from 9:30-11am. We've invited policy experts to join us for each discussion.

This is an entirely optional opportunity. If you love to read, so do we! There are NO requriements to read the books to participate in T@SH or the discussions.

Here are reviews of each:

Evicted , by Matthew Desmund

Will be distributed beginning January 22, discussion on March 5th from 9:30-11am
