CCA Book Club Builds Union Solidarity
CCA’s Book Club began in 2012 to provide a forum for members to read and discuss books about the Labor Movement as well as issues that threaten faculty. Book titles are made known in advance while discussions take place during the Spring Conference. In many cases, the author is on hand to make a presentation or participate in the discussions. In one instance in 2012, author Philip Dray participated in a CCA news conference promoting the Proposition 30 tax increase initiative.
“We intend to talk about these stories, to weave our own stories into this honorable American tapestry, and from these discussions contribute to the success of not only CCA, but of public higher education in California,” explained Michael Smith, a member of the Victor Valley College Faculty Association and former as CCA Communications Director.
Book selections have included:
There is Power in a Union: The Epic Story of Labor in America, by Philip Dray
Three Strikes: Miners, Musicians, Salesgirls, and the Fighting Spirit of Labor’s Last Century by Howard Zinn and Dana Frank
The Fall of the Faculty: The Rise of the All-Administrative University and Why it Matters by Benjamin Ginsberg
The Teacher Wars by Dana Goldstein
Contact CCA President Lynette Nyaggah at: president@cca4me if you have a book title you’d like to suggest for an upcoming discussion.
