UPDATE: Come to Book Club today at 5pm! (This was originally posted on March 17.)
Last month Rob, Etsy’s founder aka Rokali, reinstated our beloved book club with Muhammad Yunus’s Banker to the Poor. If you haven’t read it yet you have 1 week to do so! We’ll be meeting next Monday (March 24th) at 5pm EST in the Treehouse of the Virtual Labs to discuss Yunus’s insightful memoir about the establishment of the Grameen Bank, a micro-loan bank that has grown from helping impoverished Bangladeshians to helping create change for people all over the world.
For those who have already finished Banker to the Poor, pick up our next book, Deep Economy by Bill McKibben. In this manifesto, McKibben challenges our obsession with growth and consumption and advocates a new focus on community and relocalization.
"Deep Economy offers a realistic, if challenging, scenario for a hopeful future. I believe that the more we nurture the essential humanity of our economy, the more we will recapture our own." — Bill McKibben
See you Monday, bookish Etsians!
