Crisis: Climate change is topic of Muskegon Community Read


West Michigan Environmental Action Council (WMEAC) and the Michigan Chapter of the Sierra Club are sponsoring Muskegon County Community Read 2022 -What Future Will Muskegon County Choose, in partnership with Muskegon area libraries and the Book Nook and Java Shop in Montague.

The book chosen is “The Future We Choose: Surviving the Climate Crisis,” by Christiana Figueres and Tom Rivett-Carnac (Knopf, 2020). The authors, who led negotiations for the historic 2015 Paris Agreement, have written an instructive and optimistic book about the crisis facing humanity, providing thoughtful guidance on what governments, corporations, and individuals can do to put the necessary climate solutions in place.

The program will begin with a virtual kickoff, Voices of the Future: Featuring Muskegon Area Youth, 7 to 8:30 p.m., Thursday, February 3, where young people in Muskegon County will express their views on climate change with the spoken and written word, art, and videos.

Library book discussion events will be scheduled throughout February and March.
