Environmental Book Club

Environmental Book Club

WMEAC is excited to host an environmental book club where people from across the region are able to learn more about environmental topics and get more in touch with our community. Everyone is welcome to join us for our book club meetings or to follow along on their own. The Environmental Book Club is sponsored by our friends at Books & Mortar Book Store!

The WMEAC Environmental Book Club meets the first Wednesday of each month from 6:30-7:30pm. We will continue to meet virtually over Zoom, and the link is sent out before the meeting and not posted publicly. The book club is sponsored by Books & Mortar independent bookstore, which offers a 10% discount on book club titles when you purchase in-store or order online.

The next WMEAC Environmental Book Club meeting will be:

Wednesday, September 6th from 6:30 to 7:30pm (via zoom)
