About the Book Study Group

Since 2018, between 20 and 30 avid readers meet every two weeks via Zoom to discuss. We choose books with depth and relevance to issues of the day.

Vision for the Book Study Group

  • We participate in in-depth discussions and share ideas on books that speak to our ecological integrity, social and economic justice, and peaceful coexistence.
  • We educate ourselves about ecological, social, economic concerns so that we have better and more effective ideas about how to co-create change, and act from knowledge and insight gained through our reading and our dialogue.
  • We attract diversity.
  • We have facilitators trained in helping diverse groups of individuals with different approaches and ideas to have discussions where all can be heard.
  • We can act as a possible educational resource for other action groups within EAN
  • We continue to select books by having members offer suggestions, and then choose by majority vote/agreement
  • We encourage the formation of smaller groups from within the book group who want to chat, discuss, and just enjoy each other’s company
  • We hold an annual BIG READ for all members of EAN
  • We conclude each meeting with an action step to reduce GHG in the atmosphere.
