Afterglow: Climate Fiction for Future Ancestors

May 20, 2023 @ 10:30 am 11:30 am

Concerned about the climate crisis? Feeling overwhelmed?

Join a refreshing discussion with others concerned about climate and looking for some hope instead of despair. Climate Fiction Book Reads meets
again on May 20 at the Marathon County Public Library-Wausau from 10:30 am – 11:30 am.

We are reading short stories with hopeful themes. Short stories minimize the stress of reading a complete novel yet are full enough to inspire robust discussion.

Our next book is called: Afterglow: Climate Fiction for Future Ancestors, edited by Grist. We decided to all read one “anchor” story and then choose two other stories to read on your own, and come prepared to share your reactions and thoughts with the rest of the group. Please read the first story “Afterglow” and the other two stories are of your choice.

Janke Bookstore expects to have book copies available at the front of the store with the other book club books. The library may choose to order some copies for their shelves too. If so, they likely won’t be available until May.

This month’s meeting will be May 20, and we will continue the discussion of “Afterglow.” Please feel free to share the invitation and
information with others.
