From the roots to the crown and back to the seeds, The Overstory unfolds in concentric rings of interlocking fables that range from antebellum New York to the late twentieth-century Timber Wars of the Pacific Northwest and beyond, exploring the essential conflict on this planet: the one taking place between humans and nonhumans. There is a world alongside ours-vast, slow, interconnected, resourceful, magnificently inventive, and almost invisible to us. This is the story of a handful of people who learn how to see that world and who are drawn up into its unfolding catastrophe.
Our book club prides itself on reading non-traditional books that are not “book clubby,” about which we have engaging conversations, paired with great snacks and wine. Join us! Shoot the bookstore a note or give us a call and we’ll add you to the email list. Or just show up on the second Thursday of the month at 6pm. All are welcome.
