About the event

The Earth Lounge Environmental Book Discussion Series will meet on the last Wednesdays from August through November to explore the curiosities and complexities of nature, environmentalism, and sustainability through fiction and nonfiction literature. Register for any or all of the discussions in the series:

In We Are the Weather, Jonathan Safran Foer explores the central global dilemma of our time in a deeply personal, and urgent new way. The task of saving the planet will involve a great reckoning with ourselves, he posits―with our all-too-human reluctance to sacrifice immediate comfort for the sake of the future. We have, he reveals, turned our planet into a farm for growing animal products, and the consequences are catastrophic. Only collective action will save our home and way of life.
