Nonfiction Book Group

Those of you reading The Soiling of Old Glory by Louis Masur might be interested in the essay in the Boston Globe of January 31. Written by Ted Landsmark, the African-American businessman in the book, it is titled “It’s Time to End Busing in Boston”.    Since the city’s demographics have changed, Mr. Landmark is stating that busing no longer achieves its purpose, it’s too costly , and the “two-way adversarial dialogue has been replaced by nuanced conversations about how to improve learning…”.  I’ll have a copy of the essay at the book group’s next meeting on February 17 at 6:30.  Hope to see you there!
