Tuesday, May 3, 5:30 PM, Literati Bookstore’s Eco Book Club, hosted online by Alison Swan. All are welcome. We will discuss Suzanne Simard’s book Finding the Mother Tree.
All are welcome and discussions and are always free. Please go to the Literati Bookstore calendar for the most current information and to purchase the book. Pre-Covid-19, we met every other month, year-round, at Literati, 124 E. Washington, Ann Arbor, MI 48104. Recent Eco Book Club reads include: The Ministry for the Future (Kim Stanley Robinson), Rescuing the Earth (Tony Hiss), The Seed Keeper (Diane Wilson), Hummingbird Salamander (Jeff Vandermeer), All We Can Save (edited by Ayana Elizabeth Johnson & Katharine K. Wilkinson), A World of Wonders (Aimee Nezhukumatathil), Let Them Be Left (Keith Taylor),Sacred Instructions (Sherri Mitchell). The Naturalist (by E.O. Wilson, graphic edition adapted by Jim Ottaviani),This Land Is Our Land (Jedediah Purdy), A Fine Canopy (Alison Swan), Trace (Lauret Savoy), Black Nature (Camille T. Dungy), A Field Guide to Climate Anxiety (Sarah Jaquette Ray), The Unsettling of America (Wendell Berry), Letters to a Young Farmer (Stone Barns), Why Birds Sing (David Rothenberg), The Carnivore Way (Cristina Eisenberg), The Overstory (Richard Power), The Seaweed Chronicles (Susan Hand Shetterly), The Control of Nature (John McPhee), Braiding Sweetgrass (Robin Wall Kimmerer), High Tide Rising (Kathleen Dean Moore), and The Home Place (J. Drew Lanham). Fun to remember: in 2019, as part of The World to Come exhibition at the University of Michigan Museum of Art (UMMA), we took Eco Book Cub on the road and met at UMMA. If you buy books, I strongly encourage you to buy your books from Literati or the bookstore of your choice. How could we live without books and bookstores? I’m so looking forward to meeting in person at Literati again one day.
