The Center for Applied Liberal Arts and Humanities NY have teamed up to bring you this free series of faculty-led book discussions. Participants will have a chance to come together with others in the NYU/NYC community to talk about four chosen books that examine the natural world from New York to the West. The books include: An Unreasonable Woman, Winter in the Blood, Red-Tails in Love, and Angle of Repose. Facilitated by author and instructor Jan Clausen, these discussions will engage with perspectives that capture the complicated relationship Americans have with the land and living things around them. Throughout, we’ll be asking how each book speaks to our current sense of urgency around environmental issues in a time of cascading threats to the planet we call home. While looking at the four books in sequence offers an especially rich experience, participants are welcome to attend as few or as many sessions as desired.
Afternoon discussions at NYU Midtown at 11 West 42nd St. (between 5th & 6th Avenue), Rm. 527.
Evening discussions at the NYU SPS Building, 7 E. 12th Street (between 5th Ave. & University Pl.) Rm.321.
