Come on down to George Mackie Library this Wednesday evening as our very own columnist Alex Sangha will read from his first book entitled, "Imagine: Ideas that Challenge the Status Quo"

Imagine places ideas in society and gets readers thinking critically about their most cherished beliefs and values. The topics are vast and varied: abortion, immigration, gay rights, love, mentorship, and sustainable development. There is no right answer. We must come to our own conclusions. If we can listen and learn from each other, we can accept our differences. Everyone has ideas on how to make the world a better place and fill humankind with hope. Imagine espouses humanitarian and egalitarian ideals such as every citizen deserves to reach their potential and contribute to society. Imagine is written from the perspective of protecting the people and the planet for current and future generations. You will learn of thought-provoking issues. The book proposes that we are all one and connected by spiritual energy. This will help us look for what we have in common and bring about social peace, social progress, and social change that light our souls and lift humanity in one colossal embrace.
