    Book Discussion of McKibben's Falter

    Join us in the Horizon Books cafe, downtown TC next Monday (7–9pm, Nov. 18, FREE) for a discussion of Bill McKibben's latest book, Falter. It's a provocative and wide-ranging read that touches on climate change, artificial intelligence, genetic engineering and our need to think far more deeply about technology and its effects on our humanity.

    Discussion moderator is Michigan global-warming thought leader Kate Madigan, director of the Michigan Climate Action Network.

    Even if you have not read the book, you will enjoy the conversation and are welcome to add your thoughts! See you there! Falter is the 2019 book selection for the Bob Russell Resilience Reading Project.
