About this event

There are some books that lend themselves to a slow and thoughtful read over many weeks. Robin Wall Kimmerer’s Braiding Sweetgrass is such a book, and we’re excited to announce that it’s our pick for this winter’s Slow-Read Book Club. We’ll split this thought-provoking book into three parts, and gather at the Land Library’s Globeville branch to discuss each section (over three sessions) and see where our conversation leads us. A slow-read will give us all a change to dive deep into this remarkable book about people and land!

“Robin Wall Kimmerer shows how the factual, objective approach of science can be enriched by the ancient knowledge of the indigenous people. It is the way she captures beauty that I love the most — the images of giant cedars and wild strawberries, a forest in the rain and a meadow of fragrant sweetgrass will stay with you long after you read the last page.“– Jane Goodall

Sunday, February 5th, 19th, and March 5th, 11am to 1pm, in-person at the Land Library’s Globeville branch. Your Eventbrite registration covers all three Book Club meetings.

Book Club Fee: $25, with all proceeds supporting the Land Library’s Creative Residency Program at Buffalo Peaks Ranch.

EVENTBRITE REGISTRATION BEGINS on Saturday, December 17th, 10am Mountain Time. Space is limited.
