The first book discussion will prepare attendees to read the book critically and with an open mind. Dr. Lee will discuss research designs and measurements in social psychology, including the Implicit Association Tests (IATs) that the authors of "Blindspot" developed. By understanding the research methods of the evidence cited in the book, readers may better approach the claims and purpose of the text. All reading levels are welcome; however, it is recommended that attendees read at least the first three chapters beforehand.

David Masciotra will read from and talk about his 2020 book, I Am Somebody: Why Jesse Jackson Matters.
David’s book addresses the theme of this year’s One Book program of Implicit Bias and Uncomfortable Conversations. In exploring why Jesse Jackson matters, David suggests the neglect and underestimation of his role as an organizer and negotiator and politician is a product of both explicit bias that exists in our politics, media, and news reporting, and an implicit bias that is too accepting of misleading and incomplete accounts of Jackson’s ongoing campaigns for civils rights and economic justice.
David Masciotra teaches courses in writing and literature at Indiana University Northwest, and is a frequent contributor of columns, interviews, and reviews to a range of publications such as LA Review of Books, No Depression, Crime Reads and several others, and is regular columnist on Salon.com.
