Book Study of John Woolman’s Journal

I will be leading an online book discussion on John Woolman’s Journal this winter. Woolman was an eighteenth-century Quaker who was part of a movement to abolish human enslavement in colonial America. He was also a critic of British imperialism, consumerism, and the abuse of American Indians. We will read two chapters a week across six weeks. I’ll provide some essays to enhance the readings, as well as two podcasts and a final Q&A webinar at the end.

I find Woolman to be an inspiring and challenging figure. Some of my work on Woolman is available around the web:
