Climate Action Book Club: Late Migrations at Virtual

Monday, August 29, 2022 - 6:00 PM to 7:00 PM

Audience: Adults/ Older Adults

Categories: Green/Environment, Book Club/Discussion, Educational Interest

Join us for a discussion of Late Migrations by Margaret Renkl. Request a physical copy here, or an electronic copy from Hoopla or Overdrive. "Growing up in Alabama, Margaret Renkl was a devoted reader, an explorer of riverbeds and red-dirt roads, and a fiercely loved daughter. Here, in brief essays, she traces a tender and honest portrait of her complicated parents-her exuberant, creative mother; her steady, supportive father-and of the bittersweet moments that accompany a child's transition to caregiver. And here, braided into the overall narrative, Renkl offers observations on the world surrounding her suburban Nashville home. Ringing with rapture and heartache, these essays convey the dignity of bluebirds and rat snakes, monarch butterflies and native bees. As these two threads haunt and harmonize with each other, Renkl suggests that there is astonishment to be found in common things: in what seems ordinary, in what we all share." -- Publisher's description. Register in advance for this meeting: https://us06web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZEtf-qvqz4pHdWjlI13swtjPiTkImVtIytW  After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
