See You Tuesday for Part II of Death and Life of the Great Lakes Community Read

On Tuesday night, November 13, at 6:30, we will continue our Community Read discussion of The Death and Life of the Great Lakes by Dan Egan.

For this evening’s discussion, we will focus on Part II: The Back Door. If you haven’t had a chance to read it now, there is still plenty of time before we meet. This section of the book travels quickly from the southern tip of Lake Michigan through the Mississippi River Basin and beyond, beginning with the undividing of the continental divide between the two great water systems. A historic whodunit!

Tuesday evening’s format will be much like our last session. We will break into groups, talk about the section of the book, share our perspectives, share with the whole group, and then wave our new scepters as Czars and Czarinas of the Great Lakes to decide how we will fix things.

Our last session in November will be a different sort of evening. We have a 20-year NOAA biologist joining us along with representation for various water action groups with our focus on Part III: The Future.

Looking forward to seeing you on Tuesday. Snacks to share are welcome. Bring your own beverage if you’re not into Coffee, Tea, or water.
