In honor of the United Nations International Year of Cooperatives, cooperative organizations in Great Britain, the United States, and Canada have sponsored publication of a new edition of Weavers of Dreams: Founders of the Modern Cooperative Movement, by David Thompson.
The book tells the story of the pioneering of the modern cooperative movement in Rochdale, England. The new Weavers of Dreams includes a newly designed cover with a painting by British artist Xavier Pick, along with new essays from several national and international co-op leaders.
The author will donate a portion of the sales from each book to the Twin Pines Cooperative Foundation. To order, contact David Thompson: 503-757-2233 or [email protected], or visit www.community.coop/twinpines/weavers.
