Community Book Club: Gathering Moss (online)

For our next Community Book Club, we are reading Gathering Moss by Robin Wall Kimmerer. We are happy to host this month’s book club in collaboration with Squamish CAN!

About the Book: Living at the limits of our ordinary perception, mosses are a common but largely unnoticed element of the natural world. Gathering Moss is a beautifully written mix of science and personal reflection that invites readers to explore and learn from the elegantly simple lives of mosses. Drawing on her diverse experiences as a scientist, mother, teacher, and writer of Native American heritage, Kimmerer explains the stories of mosses in scientific terms as well as in the framework of indigenous ways of knowing. In her book, the natural history and cultural relationships of mosses become a powerful metaphor for ways of living in the world. (from the publisher)
