Big Sur Land Trust’s Virtual Book Club – Braiding Sweetgrass

November 12 @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm

Join Big Sur Land Trust’s virtual book club!

For our next book, we’ve chosen Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall Kimmerer, a New York Times and Washington Post bestseller and named “Best Essay Collection of the Decade” by Literary Hub. Drawing on her life as an indigenous scientist, and as a woman, Kimmerer shows how other living beings―asters and goldenrod, strawberries and squash, salamanders, algae, and sweetgrass―offer us gifts and lessons, even if we’ve forgotten how to hear their voices. In reflections that range from the creation of Turtle Island to the forces that threaten its flourishing today, she circles toward a central argument: that the awakening of ecological consciousness requires the acknowledgment and celebration of our reciprocal relationship with the rest of the living world. For only when we can hear the languages of other beings will we be capable of understanding the generosity of the earth, and learn to give our own gifts in return. Join our upcoming virtual book club event on November 12 from 4:30 – 6:00pm (PT)!

We’re partnering with Pilgrim’s Way, an independent community bookstore in Carmel. They are open or you can call them at 831-624-4955 and they will have the book drop-shipped to you.
