Book Signing with Robin Wall Kimmerer
April 23, 2014 - 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM
Celebrate Earth Day with Author Robin Wall Kimmerer. Robin will speak about her new book, “Braiding Sweetgrass” and our connection to the Earth. The title of the book and braiding is what Robin Wall Kimmerer does, weaving her strands of biology professor, mother and Potawatomi woman. Her book of wisdom, knowledge and teachings celebrates life that is both ordinary — her simple days as a working parent — and magical, filled with many gifts from good-hearted communities. Her interactions, however, are not solely with human groups but are equally and necessarily with the natural world. She introduces readers to a language of flora and fauna that is readably right in front of them, and nudges — at times, urges — her readers to recognize an inclusive reciprocity with our environment.
Light refreshments wil be served. Copies of Robin’s book are available at the event for signing & purchase. Also at: Syracuse Cultural Workers STORE 400 Lodi St M-F 9-5pm 315.474.1132
