Green Reads Book Club

The Georgia Conservancy // 230 Peachtree Street, Suite 1250, Atlanta, GA 30303


Hosted by Atlanta’s A Cappella Books, Green Reads Book Club is a Georgia Conservancy-led discussion of select environmentally-focused books


If you are interested in our environment and concerned about protecting and conserving Georgia’s natural resources, join the Staff of the Georgia Conservancy for the Green Reads Book Club. Starting Wednesday, July 17, the Green Reads Book Club will meet the 3rd Wednesday of every month from 6:30 PM - 8 PM at the Georgia Conservancy’s office in Downtown Atlanta.

We will delve into essential reads related to land conservation and protection, sustainable growth, and stewardship among other environmentally-focused subjects as we:

  • Inform ourselves

  • Exchange new ideas

  • Expand our minds

  • Share our love of literature

Some titles will be Georgia specific, others more global in perspective. Selections will include journalism, biographies, historical fiction, short stories, and novels, as well as literary works for younger readers.

* Please feel free to bring your own food and drink to our monthly Green Reads Book Club

Drawdown: The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming
edited by Paul Hawken

The 100 most substantive solutions to reverse global warming, based on meticulous research by leading scientists and policymakers around the world

"At this point in time, the Drawdown book is exactly what is needed; a credible, conservative solution-by-solution narrative that we can do it. Reading it is an effective inoculation against the widespread perception of doom that humanity cannot and will not solve the climate crisis. Reported by-effects include increased determination and a sense of grounded hope." --Per Espen Stoknes, Author, What We Think About When We Try Not To Think About Global Warming
