Explorations Read-Aloud: “Tribe: On Homecoming and Belonging” by Sebastian Junger

Friday, November 12 @ 11:00 am 12:00 pm

Every Friday, at 11:00 am, on the library’s YouTube Channel and Facebook Page, the library will stream a brand new recording of local thespian, Joseph Coté reading aloud selections from a wide variety of fascinating and entertaining books of fiction and non-fiction. This is a program to help keep our community connected to books during the pandemic when we are unable to meet in person.

For November 12’s “Honoring Veterans Day” program, Coté will read aloud from Sebastian Junger’s book, Tribe: On Homecoming and Belonging. Summary: Combining history, psychology, and anthropology, Tribe  explores what we can learn from tribal societies about loyalty, belonging, and the eternal human quest for meaning. It explains the irony that—for many veterans as well as civilians—war feels better than peace, adversity can turn out to be a blessing, and disasters are sometimes remembered more fondly than weddings or tropical vacations. Tribe explains why we are stronger when we come together and how that can be achieved even in today’s divided world.
