Mayor’s Book Club

The Mayor’s Book Club is co-sponsored by Sacred Space and the Mayor’s Office of Tucson for the purpose of creating greater understanding among people and a stronger social fabric. Participating in one of the book groups led by our partners helps our city more fully realize the Compassion Resolution passed unanimously by Tucson City Council in 2015.

Join a book club to increase trust across our city, awareness and respect of differences, and sense of belonging in community.
