Green Reads Book Club


Hosted by Atlanta’s A Cappella Books, Green Reads Book Club is a Georgia Conservancy-led discussion of select environmentally-focused books


If you are interested in our environment and concerned about protecting and conserving Georgia’s natural resources, join the staff of the Georgia Conservancy for the Green Reads Book Club. The Green Reads Book Club will meet virtually the 3rd Wednesday of every month from 6:30 PM - 8 PM.

We will delve into essential reads related to land conservation and protection, sustainable growth, and stewardship among other environmentally-focused subjects as we:

  • Inform ourselves

  • Exchange new ideas

  • Expand our minds

  • Share our love of literature

Some titles will be Georgia specific, others more global in perspective. Selections will include journalism, biographies, historical fiction, short stories, and novels, as well as literary works for younger readers.


Wednesday, August 18 at 6:30 PM

We Are The Weather by Jonathan Safran Foer

From MacMillan Publishers: In ‘We Are the Weather’, Jonathan Safran Foer explores the central global dilemma of our time in a surprising, deeply personal, and urgent new way.

Some people reject the fact, overwhelmingly supported by scientists, that our planet is warming because of human activity. But do those of us who accept the reality of human-caused climate change truly believe it? If we did, surely we would be roused to act on what we know. Will future generations distinguish between those who didn’t believe in the science of global warming and those who said they accepted the science but failed to change their lives in response?

The task of saving the planet will involve a great reckoning with ourselves—with our all-too-human reluctance to sacrifice immediate comfort for the sake of the future. We have, he reveals, turned our planet into a farm for growing animal products, and the consequences are catastrophic. Only collective action will save our home and way of life. And it all starts with what we eat—and don’t eat—for breakfast.”
