  • Conversation Café: A Climate Change Book Discussion

    Are you worried about how climate change is affecting the coast of Maine? Have you seen changes here that impact your work or life on the coast? Let’s discuss! We will be using a unique, small group discussion format as an outlet to brainstorm, collaborate, and voice our thoughts on local climate change using the framework of the books, Settled in the Wild and The Last Lobster.
    Settled in the Wild is a collection of essays by Susan Hand Shetterly. Shetterly notes her impact on nature and vice versa while living rough in Downeast Maine. Her subtle, gentle observations reveal changes in our natural world over her 40 years here.
    The Last Lobster is a new book by environmental author Christopher White about Maine’s biggest coastal industry. White travels up and down the coast talking to fisherman, scientists, and community members within the lobster fishery. He settles down and embeds himself in Stonington, with the goal of feeling out climate change, how it has changed lobstering, and how it affects the lobsters and humans involved by going straight to the source.
    For any kids that would like to join in the discussion, we are recommending A World Without Fish by Mark Kurlansky. This book uses straightforward science and a few “what ifs” to open kids’ eyes to the impact of a history of overfishing and what we can do about it before it’s too late.
    This event is free and open to the public; no registration is required. The above books can be checked out at the Library or through interlibrary loan. Please call Jessie Blanchard at 594-0310 with any questions.
