In 2023, The Community Foundation for Northern Virginia launched its inaugural Elevate NOVA Book Circle with Mónica Guzmán’s I Never Thought of It That Way: How to Have Fearlessly Curious Conversations in Dangerously Divided Times.

We're delighted to share that our 2024 book selection is David BrooksHow to Know a Person: The Art of Seeing Others Deeply and Being Deeply Seen. David Brooks will kick off this year's program at our Shape of the Region Conference on February 9th, which is presented with 19 regional partners representing all sectors and reflecting the diversity of our region to tackle the issue of broken social trust that has left Americans divided, lonely, and in social gridlock.
