Exploring Authors Book Club: Robin Wall Kimmerer

Exploring Authors Book Club: Robin Wall Kimmerer

Thursday, November 11, 7:00 pm until 8:00 pm
Online

Join us at the GPL for our virtual book club, “Exploring Authors” on the second Thursday of each month at 7 pm.

We will be exploring nonfiction writers for the next three sessions, beginning with Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the Teachings of Plants, by Robin Wall Kimmerer.

As a botanist, Robin Wall Kimmerer has been trained to ask questions of nature with the tools of science. As a member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation, she embraces the notion that plants and animals are our oldest teachers. In Braiding Sweetgrass, Kimmerer brings these two lenses of knowledge together to take us on “a journey that is every bit as mythic as it is scientific, as sacred as it is historical, as clever as it is wise.”

Copies are available at the library.
