Pacifica Culture Club! March 2015 Discussion Topic: Poverty in America

Florey's welcomes you to our culture discussion club!

***Wednesday, March 25th, 7:30-9:00pm***

A social discussion concerning class, the American Dream and the daily struggle of 45 million Americans living in poverty. "The test of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much it is whether we provide enough for those who have little." – Franklin Roosevelt

Similar to a book club, Culture Club selects a monthly topic, and has a social group discussion. Books, movies, events and more are recommended to spur discussion and learning! Open to all, email with questions.

March's Topic Recommendations:

Non-Fiction – Nickeled and Dimed by Barbara Ehrenreich – Available at Florey's
There is a lot of great non-fiction related to poverty in America, this is just one suggestion but there are many others if you're interested in choosing one you prefer.

Non-Fiction Novel, Memoir - The Glass Castle – Available at Florey's
On the flipside there is not a lot of fiction about Poverty in America that I could find, the best one known is Grapes of Wrath. If you're up for the challenge I recommend it!

Movie - Pursuit of Happyness

Movie in Theaters – Macfarland USA, though not exactly about poverty, it does illustrate the struggle to rise above as poor, 'lower class' citizens of this country. (Trailer: )

Event - Volunteering/attending event for Project Homeless Connect

Articles – An America Divided

Drinks and light bites will be available! Feel free to bring a snack or a beverage to share!

We hope to see you!
