PROGRAM NOTE: We’ve selected a new book for discussion on May 16, 2020, Saturday, 12:30-2:00 p.m. Adam Kaiserman will lead the discussion on We Are the Weather: Saving the Planet Begins at Breakfast a new non-fiction offering by Jonathan Safran Foer.
Jonathan Safran Foer explores the central global dilemma of our time in a surprising, deeply personal, and urgent new way. Some people reject the fact, overwhelmingly supported by scientists, that our planet is warming because of human activity. But do those of us who accept the reality of human-caused climate change truly believe it? If we did, surely we would be roused to act on what we know.
