Winter 2022 Eco – Action Book Chat

January 27 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

How do we hold on to hope in these challenging times? Find out how from the globally famous naturalist Jane Goodall, with Douglas Abrams, co-author of The Book of Joy, as we discuss their new book, “The Book of Hope: A Survival Guide for Trying Times on Thursday, January 27, 2022.

The Book of Hope, with stories and photographs from Jane’s decades long environmental and conservation work, touches on questions like: How do we stay hopeful when everything seems hopeless? How do we cultivate hope in our children? What is the relationship between hope and action?

WMEAC’s Lakeshore Outreach Organizer Tanya Cabala will be facilitating this virtual discussion. Together we will read about how Jane became a messenger of hope and an advocate for environmental justice, and her new and exciting plans going forward. We will learn how to be hopeful, as we approach a new year with many opportunities for positive action on climate change.

Participants are encouraged to purchase the book from the co-sponsoring independent bookstores, Book Nook & Java Shop in Montague, or Books and Mortar in Grand Rapids.
