"OUR EARTH" BOOK DISCUSSION CLUB, at the Bethesda Library

The book to be discussed today is: THE SIXTH EXTINTION by Elizabeth Kolbert

Come, share your ideas and learn more about environmental topics in this space for thoughtful exchange, around fiction and non-fiction books.

Starting from a common base to have real discussions about the environment, this book discussion club is a great way to deepen ideas, have respectful debates while listening to the points of view of others and broaden our understanding and vision on this important topic. Together, we may discover new forms of commitment and imagine new sustainable and desirable horizons.

THE SIXTH EXTINTION by Elizabeth Kolbert .

The Pulitzer Prize-winning author, Elizabeth Kolbert travels the world and meets with scientists who are grappling with the ecological outcomes of human activity. Our planet has endured five events of mass extinction, from centuries of catastrophic heating and cooling to the asteroid that fell to earth. We are currently facing the sixth extinction, and this time our human species is to blame.
