Books & Brewskis | Robust Books, Beer to Match
June 26 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm| The Filling Station Microbrewery
TADL’s book club hosted at The Filling Station Microbrewery, next door to the Woodmere (Main) Branch. Readers can look forward to a laid-back atmosphere and lively discussion of the month’s book choice, titles as varied and distinctive as the beer served up. Books & Brewskis will meet the last Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m.
The book choice for June is Saving Arcadia by Heather Shumaker:
Summary: Saving Arcadia: A Story of Conservation and Community in the Great Lakes is a suspenseful and intimate land conservation adventure story set in the Great Lakes heartland. The story spans more than forty years, following the fate of a magnificent sand dune on Lake Michigan and the people who care about it. Author and narrator Heather Shumaker shares the remarkable untold stories behind protecting land and creating new nature preserves. Written in a compelling narrative style, the book is intended in part as a case study for landscape-level conservation and documents the challenges of integrating economic livelihoods into conservation and what it really means to "preserve" land over time.
