Evening Book Club: The Overstory by Richard Powers

February 23 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

Our Evening Book Club will meet virtually to discuss The Overstory by Richard Powers on Thursday, February 23rd at 6:00 p.m. Copies of the book will be available to borrow from the library. All are welcome to join us at the meeting by clicking on the GoToMeeting link below.

From Goodreads: “The Overstory is a sweeping, impassioned work of activism and resistance that is also a stunning evocation of – and paean to – the natural world. From the roots to the crown and back to the seeds, Richard Powers’s twelfth novel unfolds in concentric rings of interlocking fables that range from antebellum New York to the late twentieth-century Timber Wars of the Pacific Northwest and beyond. There is a world alongside ours—vast, slow, interconnected, resourceful, magnificently inventive, and almost invisible to us. This is the story of a handful of people who learn how to see that world and who are drawn up into its unfolding catastrophe.”

The Overstory was awarded the 2019 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction and was shortlisted for the Booker Prize.
