Fall Book Discussion: The Overstory
October 22, 2019 6:30 pm - 8:00 pmFree
National Book Award winner Richard Powers delivers a sweeping, impassioned novel of activism and resistance that is also a stunning evocation of — and paean to — the natural world. The Overstory explores the essential conflict on this planet: the one taking place between humans and nonhumans. This is the story of a handful of people who learn how to see that conflict and who are drawn up into its unfolding challenge. Bill McKibben has called it “Beyond special” and Leanne Shapton has labeled it “The eco-epic of the year and perhaps the decade.”
Tuesday, October 22, 6:30 – 8 p.m.
Freewill offering; No registration required. All are welcome to either or both discussions. First session was held on October 1. This session will cover the second half of the book.
