Latest Utne Publishes Two Articles on Dialogue

The Utne Reader (www.utne.com) has two articles in its latest issue on promoting dialogue across social divides. One article titled The Great Divide interviews Stephen Miller, author of Conversation: A History of a Declining Art (Yale University Press, 2006). The interview covers Miller’s argument about why conversation has declined, and what we can do to revive this lost art around the dinner table and in public. A second article titled Dish it Up interviews the hosts of Minneapolis community dinner events that are designed to promote conversations among community leaders and members of the community. It includes great tips for making your own community conversations work!
