Lecture and discussion with psychologist Carol Goodman Kaufman
Congregation Knesset Israel, 16 Colt Road Pittsfield, 2 p.m.
This lively lecture and discussion will explore how we can use our writing gifts to right the world. Kaufman’s work in criminological research shows that whether the issue is global climate change, neighborhood blight, or domestic violence, writers have the means to educate, engage, and empower their readers. Muckraking based on solid research can propel grassroots activism to repair the world.
Trained as a psychologist, Carol Goodman Kaufman has also worked as a writer and editor, having published one book (Sins of Omission, 2003, Westview Press) and hundreds of articles. She is the food and travel columnist for the Berkshire Jewish Voice and produces a blog, “Food for Thought.”
