Northfield Reads book discussion: Flight Behavior

Tuesday, November 12, 2019

Book discussion followed by presentations on monarch butterflies, milkweed, and climate change.

Northfield Reads is hosting its first of three events with a conversation on Barbara Kingsolver’s Flight Behavior.

Emily Mohl of St. Olaf College and Nancy Schumacher of Carleton College will speak about their research and knowledge of climate change impacts on monarch butterflies and milkweed following the book conversation.

People are encouraged to bring and share other fiction writings on subjects that they have found useful in increasing their understanding of climate issues.

Subsequent book conversations will happen in February and April.
