October Green Book – A Sand County Almanac

A Sand County Almanac Join the Green Book Discussion Group and Potluck on Thursday, October 18, 2012. We begin with a potluck meal at 6:30pm in the Lounge of the Channing-Murray Building. At approximately 7pm, we will discuss Aldo Leopold’s classic, A Sand County Almanac, and Sketches Here and There (New York: Oxford University Press, 1949). This work has influenced other works that we have read. Leopold combines some of the finest nature writing since Thoreau with an outspoken and highly ethical regard for America’s relationship to the land. It is a unique book, a classic work of conservation, the forefunner of such important books as Annie Dillard’s Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, Edward Abbey’s Desert Solitaire, and Robert Finch’s The Primal Place. Contact: Diane Duesterhoeft
