Join Story County Conservation Naturalist Emily Herring this winter at Arcadia Café for an Environmental Literature Club.
Throughout history, there have been some amazing environmental writers, from Thoreau to Carson and Abbey to Pollan. Their diverse topics and writing styles have transcended many generations and all have one thing in common – the environment.
All book discussions will take place at Arcadia Café coffee shop, 2712 Lincoln Way, Ames. The group will discuss a different book each month in the following order:
Monday, Jan. 13, 7 - 8:30 p.m. — “Refuge: An Unnatural History of Family and Place” by Terry Tempest Williams
Monday, Feb. 10, 7 - 8:30 p.m. – “Encounters with the Archdruid” by John McPhee
Monday, March 10, 7 - 8:30 p.m. – “Second Nature” by Michael Pollan
Cost of the program is $10 with pre-registration and payment required by Friday, Dec. 6. Fee covers refreshments (sweet treats and decaf coffee). Space is limited to 20 participants, so register early! Paperback books can be purchased through Story County Conservation for $13 each and will be available to pick up at the conservation center by Dec. 20.
