About this event

The goal of Climate Book Club is to build literacy around the environment and climate change to help you continue the conversation with your community. No expertise required. We will be reading and learning together!

Climate book club is open to the public! You do not need to be a member of CCL to attend.

This event is hosted by Citizens' Climate Lobby Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex Chapter.
