At our April meeting we will discuss David Gilmour’s selection:
Naomi Oreskes and Erik M. Conway, The Collapse of Western Civilization, Columbia University Press, 2014.
This is a short read so David has asked us to also read some background material on this topic. He suggests starting with:
Essays by Wendell Berry: What are People for?, San Franscisco Press, 1990:
pp. 109 – 122, An Argument for diversity
pp. 123 – 125, What are people for?
pp. 197 – 203, Word and flesh
Alan Thein Durning, The Six Floods, an article exerpted from, This Place on Earth: Home and the Practice of Permanence, published by Sasquatch Books, Seattle, 1996.
David has copies of these articles to make available to all members of the book club.
