Our aim is to build a supportive community of people who share a vision of society based on our core values: honesty, justice, compassion, responsibility, and courage. This community promotes these values by engaging in important social issues, seeking to both understand them and take action on them. We are committed to working toward a more ethical society and a world that lives by humanist values.

October 26: Boston Book Festival – Jennifer Haigh’s “Sublimation”

onecityonestoryAndrea Perrault will facilitate a discussion of “Sublimation”, by Jennifer Haigh, this year’s selected short story for the Boston Book Festival.

“Sublimation” is a story that explores the intergenerational dynamics in one family as they tackle topics of gender nonconformity, emotional connection, and the existential crises that accompany aging.  As we have for the past several years, ESB members will discuss the Festival’s featured story.  Copies of the story will be distributed at October ESB meetings. Or, you can click here to download the story in PDF format.

Members can attend the Festival in Boston’s Copley Square on October 23-25. For more, click here.
