“Taking Care of Home: Sustainability on a Small Planet,” a talk by essayist Scott Russell Sanders at the Putnam County Public Library

Add to Calendar6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

Free and open to the public.  A description of Scott Russell Sanders' talk: Our species, one among millions, is degrading the conditions for all life on this beautiful planet. As the human population swells and the power of our technology increases, we are consuming resources and disrupting natural systems at an accelerating pace. Because of this excess, Earth’s poorest people are suffering now, and rich and poor alike will suffer in future generations. Scott Russell Sanders, author of A Conservationist Manifesto and twenty other books of fiction and nonfiction, will speak about how we might restore a balance between our way of life and the way of nature.

Scott Russell Sanders' talk will be followed by a book signing, and copies will be available of his books Stone Country: Then & Now, Dancing in Dreamtime: Stories, and Divine Animal: A Novel—and perhaps a few more. Scott Russell Sanders is the author of more than twenty books of fiction and nonfiction, including Hunting for Hope and A Conservationist Manifesto. His most recent books are Earth Works: Selected Essays (2012); Divine Animal: A Novel (2014); and a collection of his eco-science fiction stories entitled Dancing in Dreamtime (2016). A new edition of his documentary narrative, Stone Country, co-authored with photographer Jeffrey Wolin, was published in 2017. Among his honors are the Lannan Literary Award, the John Burroughs Essay Award, the Mark Twain Award, the Cecil Woods Award for Nonfiction, the Eugene and Marilyn Glick Indiana Authors Award, and fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts. In 2012 he was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. He is a Distinguished Professor Emeritus of English at Indiana University. He and his wife, Ruth, a biochemist, have reared two children in their hometown of Bloomington, in the hardwood hill country of Indiana’s White River Valley.#TalksAndArts #Humanities #NaturalSciences #SocialSciences
