Join the Artemis Book Club for 2021!
The Artemis 2021 Book Club will read and discuss three women-authored books exploring our connections to the natural world.
We will read these books between May and December and discuss them in virtual groups. Local in-person groups will be lead by ambassadors if possible! Find reading dates and registration links below.
Our booklist includes:
Flight Behavior – Read from September – December 12th
Flight Behavior takes on one of the most contentious subjects of our time: climate change. With a deft and versatile empathy Kingsolver dissects the motives that drive denial and belief in a precarious world. Flight Behavior transfixes from its opening scene, when a young woman’s narrow experience of life is thrown wide with the force of a raging fire. In the lyrical language of her native Appalachia, Barbara Kingsolver bares the rich, tarnished humanity of her novel’s inhabitants and unearths the modern complexities of rural existence. Characters and reader alike are quickly carried beyond familiar territory here, into the unsettled ground of science, faith, and everyday truces between reason and conviction.
Discussion Dates (Registration will open on November 9th):
- Sunday December 12 6:00 PM Central Time
