Winter Morning Reading Group: The Death and Life of the Great Lakes

Reading Group Facilitator: Ann Possis

The Death and Life of the Great Lakes by Dan Egan. The Great Lakes hold 20 percent of the world’s supply of surface freshwater and provide livelihoods and recreation for tens of millions of Americans. Prize-winning reporter, Dan Egan, blends the story of the lakes and the sense of place they provide to so many, with an examination of the threats they face, offering a variety of ways we can work to restore and preserve them for future generations. Join us for this read, part history, part science, and part personal narrative.

Participants will purchase or check out the book, meet on the first date to get to know one another and discuss an overview of their book. They will spend the month reading, and return on February 21 for a final discussion.

There is a suggested event donation of $10. Participants are asked to give based on their means and can add on a donation of a self-designated amount upon check out.
