Hope you can join us this Thursday night for a thoughtful conversation at the April edition of Slow Food Book Club. We will be discussing Rachel Carson's game changing book, Silent Spring. First published as excerpts in the New Yorker in 1962, Caron's now historic text became known for it's influential activism that spurred revolutionary changes to environmental law. Today, we are still having many of the conversations posed by Carson in this text - primarily, how do we undo the damage that has already been done by our overuse of pesticides and insecticides while still ensuring that our planet is a safe and flourishing place to live for generations to come? Continue the conversation with us as we discuss this life-altering book at Pilsen's own plant and garden shop - Verdant Matter. We know this one can be tough to get through. Don't think you'll finish in time for Thursday night? Don't sweat it. You can still come chat with us amongst the plants! Attendees are encouraged to bring not only your fine self but also a snack and/or drink to share.
