   What can you purchase with only $2.00?  Come to the Northfield Reads $2. dinner and gain some understanding.  The event will be hosted by the UCC in preparation for this year's Northfield Reads discussion on the book $2.00 a Day; Living on Almost Nothing in America, by Kathryn J. Edin and H. Luke Shaefer.  Activities for the event will include a simulation and meal to raise awareness about the challenges facing those who struggle with extreme poverty in America.  Participants will be asked to donate $2.00, and budget that amount for a day, using the remaining sum to purchase their dinner.  Speakers, reflection, and discussion will follow.  If possible please RSVP to f.corinne.smith@gmail.com                                                               Sponsors for Northfields Reads are Human Rights Commission, Northfield Public Library, League of Women Voters, Community Action Center, Thrivent Financial, Content Bookstore, and     Carleton Center for Community and Civic Engagement.
