Arthur Blaustein: "Democracy is Not a Spectator Sport"

When: Wed., July 25, 7 p.m. 2012

You know you're getting good information when a professor from UC Berkeley hips you to how to be a model citizen. In Democracy Is Not a Spectator Sport, community development and public policy teacher Arthur Blaustein collects hundreds of community-service opportunities and tales from the volunteering front lines in a handy guide to being all you can be, civic-mindedly. It's perfect for those looking to join a nonprofit organization, pad a college application, or just understand how to get involved and what that means. Blaustein reads at Diesel (5433 College Ave., Oakland) on Wednesday, July 25. 7 p.m., free. 510-653-9965 or DieselBookstore.com
