2021 Book Club Ongoing_no link.png

You are warmly invited to RPA's new Nature Book Club, with Rama Hamarneh, PhD. The book club provides a space to discuss books related to nature, together as a community!

One evening a month, we will meet on Zoom to discuss a book we have read, and the work's relationship to nature. We will explore multiple aspects of nature in literature - represented through multiple genres and authors from around the globe.

The next book club meeting will be on Tuesday, November 30 at 7pm, when we'll discuss Owls of the Eastern Ice: A Quest to Find and Save the World's Largest Owl by Jonathan C. Slaght.


Previous Nature Book Club selections have included:
Around the World in 80 Trees by Jonathan Drori
Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall Kimmerer

The book club is free to attend, and all are welcome, but registration is required.
