Brown Bag Books - The Overstory
Date(s) - 11/03/2020
12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

The book selection for November is “The Overstory” by Richard Powers (Fiction).

This Winner of the Pulitzer Prize ” is a  sweeping, impassioned work of activism and resistance that is also a stunning evocation of – and paean to- the natural world….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 it’s unfolding catastrophe.”  Book cover)

Please join us via Zoom on November 3rd at noon to discuss this compelling book as we live with many areas of California in flames.

The Brown Bag Books group meets year-round, except in July and August. Many attendees bring their lunches, and everyone brings a sense of humor. Monthly sessions are always lively and enjoyable.

Books chosen by the group for discussion are usually listed in the Order of Service and the Bulletin, as well as on the UUCPA website.
