Atomic Talks: Ignorance

Every week discussion posts on this year's community read will be uploaded so that members of the community can interact in a digital space! A full list of these questions can be found on the publishers site. This week we talk about ignorance:

So what do you think? Answer the question in the comments down below! And as always follow us on our social media accounts @fitchburgreads to keep the conversation going!
