Book Club with Sustainable Marblehead

Book Club with Sustainable Marblehead

Join Sustainable Marblehead’s Executive Director Elaine Leahy and Abbot Public Library Director Kimberly Grad in a discussion about “Braiding Sweetgrass” by Robin Wall Kimmerer. Registration is required – please register below.

As a leading researcher in the field of biology, Robin Wall Kimmerer understands the delicate state of our world. But as an active member of the Potawatomi nation, she senses and relates to the world through a way of knowing far older than any science. In “Braiding Sweetgrass,” she intertwines these two modes of awareness–the analytic and the emotional, the scientific and the cultural–to ultimately reveal a path toward healing the rift that grows between people and nature. The woven essays that construct this book bring people back into conversation with all that is green and growing; a universe that never stopped speaking to us, even when we forgot how to listen. 

Copies of “Braiding Sweetgrass” will be available in the Reference Room. Other formats are available at this link.

Future book club meetings are scheduled for January 10 and March 13 from 6:30 p.m. – 8 p.m. on each day. Titles will be announced in November.
