Literature of the Land: Spring Book Club

Wednesday, April 15, 2020 - 6:30 PM

Running Time: 1 hour & 30 minutes

Ends At: 8:00 PM

Join us for the spring 2020 session of Literature of the Land, a book club series hosted by the Helen Fowler Library. We read three books over three months, focusing on a specific topic of interest.

This spring we read the words of land stewards who have directly felt the changes brought on by colonization and industrialization. The conversation is a global one, but these local and native activists share, through the knowledge of their peoples  ties to the land, what it means to be a true environmentalist in a culture that demands for us to be anything but.  

 

Dates:

April 15: "Unbowed: My Autobiography" by Wangari Maathai

May 13: "The Right to Be Cold" by Sheila Watt-Cloutier

June 17: "As Long as the Grass Grows: The Indigenous Fight for Environmental Justice, from Colonization to Standing Rock" by Dina Gilio-Whitaker

 

Registration is mandatory as attendance is limited in number to allow for interactive discussion in a friendly group setting. The cost is $5 per session, $15 for all three sessions.

Each session has individual registration; please select all three date options with separate registration if you would like to attend the entire series.

Price: $5 per session
