We are partnering with the Invermere Public Library to provide ways to discuss the impact of climate change through books. The first one will be The Right to Be Cold by Sheila Watt-Cloutier. As an environmental, cultural and human rights advocate who grew up in Nunavik, Watt-Cloutier convincingly argues that climate change is a human rights issue to which everyone on the planet is inevitably linked. In 2007, she was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize for her advocacy work in showing the impact of global climate change on human rights.
The book club meeting is on Saturday, June 18th at 2:15 pm. There are plenty of copies, so please let the library know if you would like to pick one up. Join the conversation even if you haven’t had a chance to read the book!
