Environmental Book Club

October 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

We’re reading and discussing:

All the Wild That Remains : Edward Abbey, Wallace Stegner, and the American West

We will have copies at the BFL

Booklist Review:

Archetypal wild man Edward Abbey and proper, dedicated Wallace Stegner left their footprints all over the western landscape. Now, award-winning nature writer David Gessner follows the ghosts of these two remarkable writer-environmentalists from Stegner’s birthplace in Saskatchewan to the site of Abbey’s pilgrimages to Arches National Park in Utah, braiding their stories and asking how they speak to the lives of all those who care about the West.

Join environmental enthusiast, Arthur Ensroth, in discussing current, historical and future environmental issues through books! We’re finding ways to become more engaged and participatory in the natural world, educating ourselves on the climate challenges we face and looking at the history and philosophy of how the environment has been viewed through the ages. 

The BFL is collaborating with Broadmoor, Mass Audubon with this book group. We thank them for sharing their mission with us.
