Nature Writing Book Club

free and open to the public

monthly on the 4th Wednesday, 6-7pm

@ American Alpine Club Library in the American Mountaineering Center, 710 10th Street

Explore the relationship between humans and the non-human world by reading the “literature of the environment” with Golden’s newest book club, a partnership between Pack Animal Magazine, the American Alpine Club Library, and the West Denver chapter of Trout Unlimited.

“Environmental literature… has a remarkably tangible impact on both the ethics and the politics of conservation,” author Alison Hawthorne Deming writes. Reading and talking about this literature helps us connect to nature in a new way and gives us context for understanding the complicated history of our public lands. Henry David Thoreau believed that “we need the tonic of wildness” and Mary Oliver wrote that “attention is the beginning of devotion." Join a group that feels the same way.

Our book club meets in the American Alpine Club’s library in the basement of the American Mountaineering Center in downtown Golden from 6-7pm the fourth Wednesday of every month. Book selections and more details can be found here:''
