This month the Nonfiction Book Group will read and discuss House on Fire : Fighting for democracy in the age of political arson  by David Cicilline 

"Congressman David Cicilline offers his provocative takes on Republicans, Democrats, and the world of politics in the wake of Donald Trump. The rioters were still in the Capitol, shattering the door to the House Chamber and bellowing 'Hang Mike Pence,' when David Cicilline, safely locked inside his office, began writing the articles of impeachment that would lead to Donald Trump's second Senate trial. He helped prosecute the case, earning admiration from his fellow progressives and a national following. But by summer he would be calling out some of those same colleagues for caving to special interests and attempting to block his plan to rein in the Big Tech companies like Facebook and Google. Beyond sounding an alarm, House on Fire identifies the key threat to our democracy--that the GOP has become a Trumpist authoritarian cult--and outlines how we fight back."
