The Overstory

For our first virtual book club, we chose The Overstory, the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Richard Powers.

The novel is about nine Americans whose unique life experiences with trees bring them together to address the destruction of forests. Powers was inspired to write the work while teaching at Stanford University after he encountered giant redwood trees for the first time.

Jeannette Tuitele-Lewis hosted a panel discussion on May 14 with professional forester Nadia Hamey and BSLT’s associate director of conservation Nikki Nedeff. Watch a recording from our virtual book club below or by clicking here.
