Immediately following the presentation of Featherbed Lane Farm, we’ll have a discussion of a related book that you just can’t miss!

Scientific journalist David Biello and author of the book The Unnatural World: The Race to Remake Civilization in the Earth’s Newest Age will explore the idea of the Anthropocene era, in which the greatest force on nature is mankind, and he profiles several people working to mitigate our effects on climate and the environment.

“The Unnatural World: The Race to Remake Civilization in Earth’s Newest Age” by David Biello is an examination of the human threat to planet Earth, a planet experiencing extinctions every ten seconds, rising temperatures, through the true stories of, “scientists, billionaires, and ordinary people…working toward saving the best home humanity is ever likely to have” (from publisher).
