Grass River Reads, GRNA's environmental reading group
Grass River Reads is a nature-themed reading group that meets at the GRNA center the second Thursday of the month at 10 am. Anyone is welcome to this program, although the reading material is geared towards young adult and adult. You do not have to register to participate. If the book of the month sounds like something you would enjoy reading and talking about with others, then stop in. That being said, we would love to see you every month!!
The goal for this group is to have thoughtful conversations with others about issues that affect all of us. We want you to walk away from these books and this experience feeling inspired but also well-informed. We have selected these books with this in mind.
Here are the book selections for the winter and spring of 2017:
January: The Windward Shore by Jerry Dennis - meeting January 12 at 10am.
February: A Sand County Almanac by Aldo Leopold - meeting Feburary 9 at 10am.
March: The Wild Trees: A Story of Passion and Daring by Richard Preston
April: The Earth Speaks: An Acclimatization Journal by Steve Van Matre and Bill Weiler
May: H is for Hawk by Helen Macdonald
June: Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the Teachings of Plants by Robin Wall Kimmerer
We try to select books that are found at your local library. If you are having trouble finding a copy of a specific book or have any other questions please contact Kendra at firstname.lastname@example.org or (231) 533-8314.
