Quarterly Book Club

Next Meeting: Sunday, April 30

Please join us as we launch our Quarterly 31st Book Club, where we will be reading Finding the Mother Tree: Discovering the Wisdom of the Forest by Suzanne Simard for our first selection. As many of you know, the 31st LD Democrats are emphasizing the environment and climate change in 2023 through our local activities and legislative focus. We thought what a better way to deep dive into that goal than read a book or two as a group! 

Finding new ways to personally connect with one another, outside of monthly LD meetings, while exploring our deep connections to —and concern for—our natural world! Sounds like fun to me! We hope you’ll join us, when we meet for discussion and conversation about the book on Sunday, April 30th from 5-7:00.  Location will be announced in the April newsletter and to those that RSVP.  Please RSVP by April 20 to:  a.olsenwalker3@gmail.com 

Book club get-togethers will be held quarterly, with probably only three this year since it is already spring. Next book will be announced at our April meet up and our website. Please see below for a summary of this quarter’s book, both Pierce and King County Libraries have copies available to borrow. If you choose to buy, our district has some lovely independent bookstores!  

NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER • From the world’s leading forest ecologist who forever changed how people view trees and their connections to one another and to other living things in the forest—a moving, deeply personal journey of discovery.

“Finding the Mother Tree reminds us that the world is a web of stories, connecting us to one another. [The book] carries the stories of trees, fungi, soil and bears–and of a human being listening in on the conversation. The interplay of personal narrative, scientific insights and the amazing revelations about the life of the forest make a compelling story.”—Robin Wall Kimmerer, author of Braiding
