Randall’s The Island Literary Book Club will resume in September.  During this fall we will be reading The New York Times bestseller Braiding Sweetgrass, Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge, and the Teachings of Plants by Robin Wall Kimmerer. The book was published by Milkweed Editions, Minneapolis, Minnesota, 2013. 

The discussions will be held virtually on zoom. Join us for one or all four conversations.   There will be speakers for each program in conversation with Elizabeth Howard.  More information will be available starting later this summer on the Randall’s Island website.
