Audience: Older Adults/ Adults

Categories: Book Club/Discussion, Green/Environment

Join us for a discussion of Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge and the Teaching of Plants by Robin Wall Kimmerer.  Check out the ebook here or the eaudiobook here immediately on Hoopla by signing in with your library card or request a physical copy here. "As a botanist, Robin Wall Kimmerer has been trained to ask questions of nature with the tools of science. As a member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation, she embraces the notion that plants and animals are our oldest teachers. In Braiding Sweetgrass, Kimmerer brings these two lenses of knowledge together to take us on 'a journey that is every bit as mythic as it is scientific, as sacred as it is historical, as clever as it is wise.'"-- Provided by publisher. Register in advance for this meeting:  https://zoom.us/meeting/register/tJMpd-CqrDojEtfYNPfYMNoSfSoFENdxtxWb  After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
