Book Club – Special meeting

August 29 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

To read the book before the meeting, there are different options available: borrow from the library or the FGCA or purchase. To reduce the impact on the environment, we prioritize books that are available at the library. You can also borrow the current and next month’s book from the community centre. After each meeting, Erin we will email the next month’s book selection and you will have the opportunity to reserve a copy of the book. You will have one week to read it before the next person on the waiting list picks it up.

Note we keep all book selections and you are welcome to borrow at anytime!

Contactevent@fairfieldcommunity.ca for information on joining the Community Book Club.

 

August 2021 I Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the Teachings of Plants by Robin Wall Kimmerer

Meeting: August 29 from 12-2 pm, outdoors at Porter Park

A best-selling non-fiction book published in 2013 that is about botany as seen through Native American traditions and Western scientific traditions. Wrote Richard Powers, of “The Overstory” fame, “I give daily thanks to Robin Wall Kimmerer for being a font of endless knowledge, both mental and spiritual.” Elizabeth Gilbert wrote in her review: “a journey that is every bit as mythic as it is scientific, as sacred as it is historical, as clever as it is wise.”
