I just bought the book to read so I can participate. Is there a main page for the book club with more info? Thanks!

Thanks, Lacey! The Book Club doesn't have a specific page on the Forum site, but we start up a new thread in the community discussion for each book. We'd love to hear your thoughts if you've started The Solution Revoluiton. What did you think?

Just purchased the book and shared with all my South Sound Partners for Philanthropy and Thurston Thrives members.  Perfect timing to get us working from the same page for 2016.
