Book cover City of Trees

While the Bushcare Walking Book Club usually gathers in one of Hobart’s beautiful bushland reserves to talk books for now we have to settle with instead gathering online.

Please join us for a virtual Zoom meeting of the Walking Book Club to discuss Sophie Cunningham’s City of Trees - Essays on Life, Death & the Need For A Forest. To join us just email bushcare@hobartcity.com.au and we will send you a link and password for this event.

Michael McGloughlin from the famed bookstore Readings says City of Trees is a "breath of fresh air accompanied by the knowledge of how much is lost, or is being lost..." 

“She makes a case that it is only through being lost that we can truly discover ourselves and the vast multitude of others that populate this world," he says.

"Moreover, it is the only way we can learn to navigate a world that’s diversity and health has been fundamentally depleted by human action. Through these essays one can find the hope and understanding to live and thrive in these dark times.” 

BYO tea and biscuits - we look forward to seeing you all to chat environmental literature!
