The non-fiction book club will be meeting in April at the home of Isobel Knowles, 1690 Cherryhill Road, on the 14th and 28th at 2pm.
Our book at that time will be This Changes Everything by Naomi Klein.
“This is the new environmentalism . . . and it has a powerful proponent in Naomi Klein. . . . This Changes Everything makes a muscular case for global warming as the defining, cross-sectional issue of our era. . . . This Changes Everything is a work of startling force, exhaustive reporting, and telling anecdote. Klein’s look at climate-change deniers is particularly gutting; my heart sank as I read a representative of the conservative American Enterprise Institute tell victims of Hurricane Sandy, ‘We need to suck it up and be responsible for taking care of ourselves.’. . . . Klein’s great gifts have always been synthesizing huge amounts of information and drawing connections between seemingly disparate issues; on those points, This Changes Everything is no different.”
