I was in a state wide AmeriCorps group that read this last year and am facilitating a group this year that uses this book. Its a great teaching/discussion tool for public service.

A fantastic compilation of essays, poems, excerpts, etc. that all relate to service. This is the text for Justice Talks, a book club of sorts for all of the RI AmeriCorps members.
