LafayetteREADs! - The Overstory

LafayetteREADs! - The Overstory

Adults - Join us for a LafayetteREADs! book discussion. The December selection is the 2019 Pulitzer Prize winner The Overstory, by Richard Powers. The Overstory is "an impassioned novel of activism and resistance that is also a stunning evocation of - and paean to - the natural world....The Overstory 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, exploring the essential conflict on this planet: the one taking place between humans and nonhumans. 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." - Library Catalog

LafayetteREADS! is a quarterly reading and discussion group led by Lafayette Public Library staff. We select books that are not only great reads, but that are relevant to today’s issues. Our informal discussions focus on the book itself, and the ways in which the story sheds light on the contemporary world. We’re a reading group that really does talk about the book! Learn more, and check out previous book selections.
