Book Discussion: Braiding Sweetgrass by Author Robin Wall Kimmerer


5:30 pm to 7:00 pm

Braiding Sweetgrass book and Franciscan Spirituality Center coffee mug

Drawing on her life as an indigenous scientist, and as a woman, author Robin Wall Kimmerer shows how other living beings -- asters and goldenrod, strawberries and squash, salamanders, algae and sweetgrass -- offer us gifts and lessons, even if we’ve forgotten how to hear their voices. In reflections that range from the creation of Turtle Island to the forces that threaten its flourishing today, she circles toward a central argument: that the awakening of ecological consciousness requires the acknowledgment and celebration of our reciprocal relationship with the rest of the living world.

Join staff from the FSPA Integral Ecology Office, Franciscan Spirituality Center, Marywood Franciscan Spirituality Center and Prairiewoods Franciscan Spirituality Center for an evening of discussion and reflection. All are welcome!
