The Little Book of Circle Processes by Kay Pranis

Are you looking for a method to hold civil conversations?  The Little Book of Circle Processes  written by Kay Pranis, an independent consultant who conducts circle training across the country, provides a good introduction.  Pranis served as the Restorative Justice Planner for the Minnesota Department of Corrections for 9 years.  Truly ‘little’, this 76-page small formatted book provides an overview of circles through history and then focuses on peace-making and talking circles. She discusses key circle elements, how to organize and follow up, and  how to host circles across generations.  She also examines the community-building impact and places circles in the context of other processes.  If your interest is peaked by this title, consider attending a September 2012 library program titled “Can We Talk?: an introduction to Conversation Circles”.
