Serving Chicago Republican Women Since 1994!
Welcome to CRWN!
Book Club - Not active at this time

Do you like to read but desire something more stimulating and educational than today's entertaining but often mindless fiction? Are you also weary of the fictitious accounts of conservatism continually spun by the Left? So were we!

We meet bimonthly at a members home. Along with some mingling, eating, and drinking, we engage in some great political discussion on our book of choice. Our book club is highly structured and professionally organized. Attendees must have read the book in order to attend the meeting. Non-CRWN members are welcome to attend their first Book Club meeting complimentary. Thereafter, you must become a CRWN member in order to attend Book Club meetings. So get on Chicago’s conservative wagon and join CRWN!

RSVP policy: If you wish to attend a meeting, RSVP at your earliest convenience once we send out the name of the book and date. Reservations are taken on a first-to-e-mail, first-served basis. Those who successfully register to attend will be given the address where the meeting will take place about a week before the meeting.

January 2014 Book Club:

America 3.0: Rebooting American Prosperity in the 21st Century-Why America's Greatest Days Are Yet to Come, by James C. Bennett and Michael J. Lotus

One of the authors, Michael Lotus, will be joining us to discuss it with us!


Information on the book:  America’s greatest days are yet to come.

We are in a painful transition period. Our government is crushingly expensive, failing at its basic functions, and unable to keep its promises. It does not work and it cannot continue as it is. But the inevitable end of big government does not mean the end of America. It only means the end of one phase of American life.

America is poised to enter a new era of freedom and prosperity. The cultural roots of the American people go back at least fifteen centuries, and make us individualistic, enterprising, and liberty-loving. The Founding generation of the United States lived in a world of family farms and small businesses, America 1.0. This world faded away and was replaced by an industrialized world of big cities, big business, big labor unions and big government, America 2.0. Now America 2.0 is outdated and crumbling, while America 3.0 is struggling to be born. This new world will bring immense productivity, rapid technological progress, greater scope for individual and family-scale autonomy, and a leaner and strictly limited government.

America has made one major transition already, and industrial America became an economic colossus. We are now making a new transition, which will surprise many Americans, and astonish the world.
