Join us for a climate change-themed winter book club to read All We Can Save: Truth, Courage, and Solutions for the Climate Crisis, a 2020 anthology of climate change essays edited by Ayana Elizabeth Johnson and Katharine K. Wilkinson. Described as “provocative and illuminating writings from women at the forefront of the climate movement who are harnessing truth, courage, and solutions to lead humanity forward,” this book offers a very human look into climate change, how it impacts us, and why it really matters.
This book club will be designed more like a seminar than a casual drop-in book club. We will take a deep dive into all sorts of aspects of climate change. You can expect rich discussions on advocacy, science, racial and environmental justice, energy and so much more, all as they relate to climate change and the climate movement. We will be choosing selected readings from the book that we hope will help you be informed, empowered, and inspired to become involved in climate solutions.
We’ll have four main sessions, each building on the previous readings and sessions. We’ll culminate in a final, more social gathering, in which we’ll also talk about some of the more practical ways we can each contribute to the climate movement. We ask that participants are committed to attending all sessions and reading all chosen excerpts.
Facilitated by NBNC Executive Director Naomi Heindel, and NBNC Teacher-Naturalist Fiona Modrak.
