Wine & Wisdom, a long-standing Asotin County Library program in partnership with Humanities Washington and Basalt Cellars, returns in August.
We don’t extend human rights to people we don’t see as fully human. So how do we develop empathy for those we view as alien or inhuman? One way is through literature, which takes us inside the lives and actions of others. By instilling empathy, and by giving voice to cries for justice, literature forms the foundation for human rights.
