In book group this year we dive into the world of eco-literature—writing that challenges us to consider our collective responsibility for planet earth.  These compelling works for young adult and adult readers-- inspirational or outraged, speculative or satiric-- seek to wake us from complacency into action. Reading selections this year include a lyrical verse-novel for middle-grade readers (Forest World), an international short story collection (I’m With the Bears: Short Stories from a Damaged Plant) and a thrilling environmental parable from the Ecuadorian Amazon (The Old Man Who Read Love Stories.) What we choose to read can help make a difference!  Join our community of globally-engaged readers; returning participants and new readers are fully welcome!

Open to all K-12 educators.
