One Book One Marin 2018

Strangers in Their Own Land by Arlie Russell Hochschild

One Book One Marin takes the idea of a localized book discussion club and expands it county-wide. Each year, cities across the US select a book of their choice and encourage their communities to read and discuss that book.

Events and programs are free and open to the public.

Our 2018 selection by renowned sociologist Arlie Russell HochschildStrangers In Their Own Land: Anger and Mourning of the American Rightaims to explain the worldview of supporters of the Tea Party movement in Louisiana. The book was a finalist for the 2016 National Book Award

Hochschild seeks to understand why some American conservatives continue to vote for policies that ultimately harm them. She traveled to Louisiana to complete a five-year study, talking to members of the Tea Party and attempting to breach the “empathy wall” that stands between conservatives and liberals.

A compassionate observer, Hochschild pursues the heart of the “deeper story,” blaming the narrative—not her subjects—that informs these peoples’ choices.
