San Francisco book discussions are facilitated by Shane Carter, Outreach Coordinator for ORIAS and by Alan Karras, author and professor in the International and Area Studies Program at University of California, Berkeley. East Bay discussions are facilitated by Shane Carter.
Participants are eligible for book reimbursement if they attend at least 3 meetings. Meetings are open to all k-12 and community college faculty. Space is limited to 10 people per group.
