About this Event

The Climate Reading Group is a new group in Newcastle, which meets every six weeks or so to discuss books that tackle climate-related issues. The group is led by Linda France, the climate writer in residence for New Writing North and Newcastle University. You can sign up for one session or as many as you like.

For this meeting we will be discussing: Rebecca Solnit, Whose Story Is This? Old Conflicts, New Chapters (Granta, 2019)

A book of essays by a deeply engaged and inspiring North American writer and commentator, who will be appearing with New Writing North at Tyneside Cinema on Tuesday 31 March. Make sure you read ‘Letter to the March 15, 2019, Climate Strikers’ (p.171). Who gets to shape the narrative of our time? With urgency, eloquence, and compassion, Solnit appraises the voices that are emerging, why they matter, and the obstacles they face in making themselves heard.

As this group has limited capacity, please make sure to cancel if you are unable to attend, so that someone else can use the place. Thank you!
