**RESCHEDULED** Book Club: "The Overstory" by Richard Powers.
**Rescheduled to January 22 due to snow**
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.
An ingeniously structured narrative that branches and canopies like the trees at the core of the story whose wonder and connectivity echo those of the humans living amongst them.--citation from the Pulitzer Prize in Fiction
This was the PBS NewsHour-New York Times book club, Now Read This choice for November 2019. So much great information on the website here.
Included are some discussion questions, an interview with Mr. Powers, and his list of 26 books that contain a wide range of information about trees, from how the American Chestnut disappeared to histories of radical forest activism... an amazing amount of fantastic behind-the-scenes information!
