The Ecological Emergency Book Club – next book and December meeting

Are you a member of staff who would like to know more about the climate emergency but don’t know where to start?

We’ve teamed up with Dr. Clare Kelly in the School of Psychology to bring you a monthly book club to showcase some of the best readings on the climate and biodiversity crisis.

December’s Book Club

Our third book club takes place on Friday, 8th December and this month’s pick is:
Richard Powers’ The Overstory. The Library has seven copies!

Powers spent a year under the redwoods of California. That reflection led to his novel, “The Overstory,” about the world of trees and a band of people determined to change the way it’s perceived. “The Overstory” won the 2019 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.

Feel free to join the conversation over on Yammer.

The Book Club is open to all staff (professional, research, academic) and takes place in the North Training Room in The Library (former Berkeley Library), the second Friday of every month (12:00-14:00).

These are moderated events, where Trinity staff can ask questions and engage in discussions about the book with the Trinity staff community. There is no need to register and all staff are welcome.
