Port Byron Library’s Non-Fiction Book Club will be reading A Sand County Almanac: And Sketches Here and There by Aldo Leopold for the meeting on Tuesday, December 21st.
A Sand County Almanac achieved prominence around the first Earth Day in 1970 and has been reborn for Earth Day 50. The 2020 edition of this timeless writing meets a new generation of readers with an introduction by famed author and conservationist Barbara Kingsolver. Through science, history, humor and prose, Leopold uses A Sand County Almanac and its call for a land ethic to communicate the true connection between people and the natural world. The hope: that readers will begin to treat the land with the love and respect that it deserves.
