LW Walking Book Club: The Overstory

June 17, 2023 @ 3:00 pm 4:00 pm


Rain date: June 18

How does it work? Prepare for the club by reading the book: The Overstory by Richard Powers

Meet at the intersection of Cedarcroft and Yorkshire.

The organizers will provide questions and discussion prompts and people can walk in pairs or small groups to discuss at their own pace. We will walk in a large group, spread out so people have enough space for social distancing. The route will vary, but prepare to walk about 1 or 2 miles at a casual pace around the neighborhood.

How do I join? All are welcome! Just read the book and meet us at the corner. No preregistration needed. It is helpful if we know you’re planning to come (in the case of last-minute changes); you can email us at newsletter@lakewalker.org to let us know.

If you have mobility issues, please email newsletter@lakewalker.org and we can develop a walking route that allows you to participate.

What are you planning to read? Our books tend to include diverse perspectives and ways of being in the world or to provide an actionable challenge to injustice. The selections include fiction and nonfiction, and part of every discussion will be about our own roles in creating a welcoming community and being better neighbors.

Past selections include Not In My Neighborhood by Antero Pietila and The Girl Who Fell From the Sky by Heidi Durrow.

How will I know about the next book selection? Keep up to date with announcements in the newsletter, through Lake Walker email alerts, or right here on the calendar on the Lake Walker website.
