Riverside BookClub

March 11 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

On Saturday, March 11, 2023, The Riverside Book Club will meet to discuss Pulitzer Prize winning novel, The Overstory, by Richard Powers. The moderator for the discussion will be Rev. Dr. Alan Bentz Letts, longtime Riversider, environmental activist and founder of the Beloved Earth Community. For a brief summary of the book, see the quote from Amazon.com. The book is available in the Riverside Gift Shop, from Amazon.com and in most local libraries.

“The Overstory, winner of the 2019 Pulitzer Prize in Fiction, is a sweeping, impassioned work of activism and resistance that is also a stunning evocation of—and paean to—the natural world. From the roots to the crown and back to the seeds, Richard Powers’s twelfth novel 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. 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.” [Amazon.com]
