September 18 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

We’re reading and discussing

The Nature Fix : Why Nature Makes Us Happier, Healthier, and More Creative by Florence Williams.

We will have copies at the BFL

Booklist Review:

The Nature Fix demonstrates that our connection to nature is much more important to our cognition than we think and that even small amounts of exposure to the living world can improve our creativity and enhance our mood. In prose that is incisive, witty, and urgent, Williams shows how time in nature is not a luxury but is in fact essential to our humanity. As our modern lives shift dramatically indoors, these ideas–and the answers they yield–are more urgent than ever.

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.
