The Jefferson County League of Women Voters nonfiction book club will examine the topic of inequality by reading varied and sundry books and articles this month.

A few of the recommended books are “The Broken Ladder: How Inequality Affects the Way We Think, Live and Die” by Keith Payne; “The Fate of the West: The Battle to Save the World’s Most Successful Political Idea” by Bill Emmott; “Dream Hoarders: How the American Upper Middle Class is Leaving Everyone Else in the Dust, Why That Is and What to Do about It” by Richard Reeves; and “One Another’s Equals: The Basis of Human Equality” by Jeremy Waldron.

Choose one of these - or any other you’ve come across - and come ready to discuss what’s happened and ideas to solve the problem. A discussion group will meet Saturday, Nov. 18, at 9:30 a.m. at Westland Meridian, 10695 W. 17th Ave., Lakewood 80215. For more information call Lynne at 303-985-5128.
