Environmental Book Event

Presented by WRSE and ReadBoston to Inspire You to Keep up the Green Work   

Hope Beneath Our Feet: Restoring Our Place in the Natural World
Edited by Martin Keogh with contributing authors Michael Pollan, Bill McKibben, Barbara Kingsolver, Alice Walker, Howard Zinn, and more

April 13, 7 pm, West on Centre
Wine reception, dinner, and book discussion: $40 per person

Fifty-three outstanding essays by environmental and other authors answer this question: “In a time of environmental crisis, how can we live right now?” When we might feel more like lapsing into despair about how the environment is being ruined, causing us to do nothing, these essays present many reasons—and just as many ways—why we should keep trying. Participation is the antidote to despair, so take these motivating essays to heart. WRSE guarantees you will find within this book much to inspire you and that the outstanding writing of these authors will move you.

Editor Martin Keogh will speak about how this book came to be made and share particularly salient and eloquent excerpts from several of the essays. A Q&A session will follow. The evening includes dinner (locally grown!) and wine; books will be available for purchase. Location: West on Centre Restaurant, 1732 Centre Street, West Roxbury. $40.
