What: Books Sandwiched In welcomes Dave Wells
When: Wednesday, June 19, 2019 - 12:00pm
Where: East Tennessee History Center, 601 South Gay Street

LoveYourEnemies.jpgKnox County Public Library invites you to join Dave Wells for a discussion of Love Your Enemies: How Decent People Can Save America from the Culture of Contempt by Arthur C. Brooks on Wednesday, June 19, noon to 1:00 in the East Tennessee History Center at 601 South Gay Street. Please note this program is scheduled for the third Wednesday of the month.

In Love Your Enemies, the New York Times bestselling author and social scientist Arthur C. Brooks shows that abuse and outrage are not the right formula for lasting success. Brooks blends cutting-edge behavioral research, ancient wisdom, and a decade of experience leading one of America’s top policy think tanks in a work that offers a better way to lead based on bridging divides and mending relationships.
