Stranger Than Fiction Book Club

Reading fiction to escape reality is a great way to unwind, but
exploring reality can sometimes be even more rewarding. These books aren’t
about fictional characters or locales. They don’t happen in a far away land
or make believe place. They are stories of our world, of our journeys, of
reality and our perception of it. We’ll be reading books that range from
botany to black holes and, trust me, it’s stranger than fiction. This
month’s book is Blessed Unrest by Paul Hawken.
