About this Event

Conversations about non-fiction books through the lens of ’The More Beautiful World Our Hearts Know is Possible’ by Charles Eisenstein. Sustainability and green building are all about a more beautiful world, aren’t they?

This year, Donna Mosher will join me since she started a FB group a couple years ago to discuss TMBWOHKIP. She will mention some of her favorite passages and I will counter with similar or contrasting passages from other books from my booklist, including Charles’ latest book ‘Climate,’ not to mention Paul Hawken’s ‘Drawdown’.

I’ll hand out copies of my ‘Continuing Education 101’ booklist because books allow readers to explore subjects in depths that are either abbreviated or getting no coverage in the main-stream media; a way to keep up with current thought leaders; and further insight into the whys of green building and behavior. Quoting Thomas Carlyle, “What we become depends on what we read after all of the professors have finished with us” lending credence to the booklist title.

CEU’s available.
