Literature of the Land Book Club - Fall
Join us for the Fall 2019 session of Literature of the Land, a book club series hosted by the Helen Fowler Library. We’ll read three books over three months, focusing on a specific topic of interest. This fall we will be discussing farmland in America. What does it mean to farm, and how can we sustainably feed a nation? Learn if we can harvest while addressing issues of chemical waste, loss of topsoil, and the ever-changing landscape of corporate agriculture from the experiences of family farms and land workers who care about what they grow from soil to seed.
Starting in September, we will discuss This Blessed Earth by Ted Genoways. October will bring us to Farming for the Long Haul by Michael Foley, and we’ll wrap up in November with Lentil Underground by Liz Carlisle.
