Hope In the Darkness: Nonfiction for the post-Trump resistance
A nonfiction-oriented sister club to In These Trying Times: fiction for a post-Trump era. We're aiming to discuss nonfiction books that provide tactics, strength, hope, and lessons for the resistance against fascism building worldwide, with a particular focus on the US resistance to Trump. Books will, judging from our list, draw from a mixture of political thought, sociology, history, and biography, among other genres. Here's our reading list for the future.

What do we read next?
I made an autocratic decision about the exact first book to read this round, but what do we want to tackle next month? Someone else pick something!
Book: Hope in the Dark
Our new Hope in the Darkness nonfiction club kicks off with a discussion of Rebecca Solnit's 2004 book designed to give liberals fearful of an increasingly dark political climate hope and strength to fight back. "No writer has better understood the mix of fear and possibility, peril and exuberance that's marked this new millennium." —Bill McKibben
