Join colleagues and author Sarah Jaquette Ray for a three-part discussion of her book, “A Field Guide To Climate Anxiety: How to Keep Your Cool on a Warming Planet” (2020).

Jaquette Ray, an environmental justice and environmental humanities scholar from Humboldt State University, draws on her “experience as a mother, professor, program leader, and certified member of the age of overwhelm” to craft strategies for cultivating resilience, based on research on emotion, social movement history, affect, and environmental philosophy. This book is written for written for both our “climate generation students” and those who teach and support them. Sarah will join us via Teams for each session as member of the group and together we will discuss ways to “do the work needed to ensure that we can all be the good ancestors to the many generations yet to come.”

It is also available as an e-book from Howe Library.
