Attention Readers!
As you may be aware, the Charter for Compassion has an established Compassion Book Club inspired by and built around Karen Armstrong’s Twelve Steps to a Compassionate Life. Many of our members have formed book clubs and discussion groups surrounding this important work. Now, we are hoping to energize and broaden our Compassionate Book Club by inviting members to join in an All-Charter-Book-Read, called The Global Read.

How will this work?

We will select several books each year. Members can read these books individually, host book clubs, form discussion groups, etc. in our various and wide-spread places of residence. We will allocate several weeks for the reading of each book and then have the authors of the book lead an on-line discussion of their work as well as address questions generated by the audience. To participate in these conversations you'll need to register for the conference call. The link will be sent to you once you sign up to participate. If you cannot join the author and guests live, please send your questions in advance to this This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. The recording will be available on the Charter website for viewing at a later time and date.

We are excited to be continuing this compassionate literary venture, and we look forward to your participation! Tell you friends. Bring them along for the discussion. Let’s read!
