Our new book club selection is Paved with Good Intentions: Canada's development NGOs from idealism to imperialism and author Nik Barry-Shaw will be joining us on Saturday December 8 6:30pm EST.
The date is a bit of a curve ball: a Saturday and only one month for this selection, but Nik Barry-Shaw has really reworked his schedule in order to come on and chat with us about his book, so hopefully we can all read it, make it, and provide some great comments!
Paved with Good Intentions looks like an important and poignant read on today's NGO culture and also serves as another diverse selection in our reading. Big thanks go out to Left Turn for this suggestion as well!
As has been pointed out, the book is unfortunately not readily available at all libraries in Canada, which decreases our inclusivity factor, but maybe some rabble.ca friend lending and loaning could somehow take place? However, the book is available at lots of independent bookstores and Fernwood Publishing is selling a hard copy with links to ebook sites as well.
