February Reading List: Critical Community Works

Creating new possibilities for collective life, for community spaces, and for more humane systems begins with learning and unlearning. For Clerestory’s February reading recommendations, we’re focusing on critical works which encourage seeing community, pain and beauty, differently in vital ways.
