In May, we are changing the format to delve into the world of Cli-Fi – Climate Fiction. The setting can be past, present, or future; the tone can be dark or hopeful; the characters heroic or blameworthy. We asked a few people for their favorites:
- Craig Foster, GEO Board of Directors – The Overstory by Richard Powers
- Courtney VanHuffel, GEO Director of Communications & Member Relations – Dust Lands by Moira Young
- Jane Harf, GEO Executive Director – Flight Behavior by Barbara Kingsolver
- Bob McCollister, GEO Board of Directors – The Ministry for the Future by Kim Stanley Robinson
We welcome you to add to that list at our next Virtual Book Club event on May 27 at 7:00 PM, where we will discuss how we can communicate about climate change through fictional storylines. Bring your favorite Cli-Fi book to discuss, or just come to hear our suggestions for how to dive into this genre. Follow GEO’s Facebook group Climate Change Book Club – Because Knowledge is Power! to stay updated on the event. We look forward to seeing you there!
