5th Annual Winter Read

book coverThis year’s selection is Hope Beneath Our Feet: Restoring Our Place in the Natural World edited by Martin Keogh.

This anthology poses the question:

In a time of environmental crisis, how can we live right now?

It collects meditations, stories, and essays from prominent environmentalists, writers, poets, grassroots activists, religious figures, CEOs, artists and more… including:

  • Diane Ackerman
  • Barbara Kingsolver
  • Bill McKibben
  • Michael Pollan
  • Francis Moore Lappe
  • Alice Walker
  • Vandana Shiva
  • Howard Zinn

Their responses help illustrate to readers positive actions, meditations, and ideas in which to channel energy and fight hopelessness and stagnation through engagement and participation. It’s a celebration of what we can do for ourselves, our community, and our world!
