We're excited to announce our 2024 book selection: David Brooks' "How to Know a Person: The Art of Seeing Others Deeply and Being Deeply Seen."

David Brooks launched this year's program at our Shape of the Region Conference in February as our keynote speaker. The event was hosted with a record 19 regional partners from diverse sectors, and featured a panel presented in partnership with WEAVE: The Social Fabric Project at the Aspen Institute. Together, we addressed the issue of broken social trust, aiming to bridge divides and foster connections within our community. We invite you to continue this conversation by joining the Elevate Nova Book Circle.

Registration is $25 to help cover expenses and includes a copy of the book. However, if this fee presents a barrier, please reach out for a waiver. We prioritize broad engagement and accessibility for the success of this program.
