Eco Group Bewilderment

Through a blend of books on topics such as Ecology and Sustainability, Nature to Fiction, we want to explore the current Climate Change crisis, and what we can do about it.

So, we welcome you to our Eco Book Group, led by Alexander, whose aim is "to provide a space for people to approach challenging topics in a welcoming environment." Join us and spend an evening talking about books over a glass of wine and nibbles.

The £5 you pay for your entry acts as a book voucher redeemable against next month's book.


This month's book is Bewilderment, by Richard Powers.

Richard Powers has spent much of his literary career writing beautiful books about the natural world. In an ideal world we would be reading Overstory, but that is ENORMOUS and nobody should be made to read a chunk to a timescale.

This is his most emotionally affecting book yet, telling the tale of a father struggling to raise his son alone against the backdrop of environmental decline, and his son's increasing awareness of the world. We will have much to talk about.

This month we are guaranteed to be in the shop, either on the balcony or - if weather permits - in the courtyard.
