[Zoom Event] Auntie's AM Book Group

We are delighted to be discussing a beautiful book at this fall season Zoom meeting of the Morning Book Club. We hope you can join us to visit with other readers as we talk about Overstory by Richard Powers.

Those on our regular mailing list will receive the Zoom link on Monday night (7th). Otherwise, you may request the link by emailing me at auntiesbooks@gmail.com. Also, if you are unfamiliar with Zoom and would like assistance, please let me know.

I look forward to seeing everyone on Tuesday (8th) at 11 a.m. I wish you all well and thank you for supporting Auntie's book club events!

If any book was primed to win the 2019 Pulitzer for Fiction it is this 
one. Drawing on the spirits of folks like James Lovelock and Ralph Waldo 
Emerson, Powers grants us a sweeping view of the history of trees in our 
country and their powerful connection to our lives, by featuring stories 
of immigrants, farmers, timber folk, from city, from the country, from 
wherever a tree has set down its roots. When you get ready to begin 
reading, I suggest you sit beneath the canopy of a great Oak or perhaps 
even a Sequoia if you can. Reach out with your spiritual fingers to 
touch the bark and ask to remember its history – your history – and 
think of all we share with these giants of the Earth. We are SO much 
better for their presence. If not already, you will become infinitely 
grateful.
