Literature of the Land

Join us for 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.

Registration is mandatory as attendance will be limited in number to allow for interactive discussion in a friendly group setting. The cost is $5 per session, $15 for all three sessions.

Fall Session

This fall we discuss 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.
