Reading with Holy Apostles

Tuesday, Aug 17, 2021, 6:30 pm

Reading with Holy Apostles Book Club will meet on Tuesday, August 17th at 6:30 pm in the Conference Room to discuss our summer fiction selection - The Overstory by Richard Powers.

The Overstory

The Overstory is a sweeping, impassioned work of activism and resistance that is also a stunning evocation of - and paean to - the natural world. From the roots to the crown and back to the seeds, Richard Powers’s twelfth novel unfolds in concentric rings of interlocking fables that range from antebellum New York to the late twentieth-century Timber Wars of the Pacific Northwest and beyond. There is a world alongside ours—vast, slow, interconnected, resourceful, magnificently inventive, and almost invisible to us. This is the story of a handful of people who learn how to see that world and who are drawn up into its unfolding catastrophe.
