About the Book Club!
Join us to discuss climate change along with the book All We Can Save, edited by Dr. Ayana Elizabeth Johnson and Dr. Katherine K. Wilkerson.
This book club is divided into 10 sessions with each session covering a different section of the book. We will learn from each other and regional leaders about how to address the climate crisis together and as individuals.
Reading each book section is encouraged, however not required.
All ages are welcome to participate and you are encouraged to join the conversation together as a family.
