Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom , Scientific Knowledge, and the Teachings of Plants

6:30pm - 8:00pm
Waupaca Area Public Library

Winchester Academy presents Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom , Scientific Knowledge, and the Teachings of Plants

Waupaca Public Library Read

Braiding Sweetgrass, is a non-fiction book by robin Wall Kimmerer. It examines modern botany and environmentalism through the lens of the traditions and cultures of the Indigenous peoples of North America. Through a series of personal reflections, the author explores the connection between living things and human efforts to cultivate a more sustainable world. Please join a book discussion led by librarian Sue Abrahamson.

The Academy offers, on average, twenty-five programs annually. There is no membership required for attendance at programs. All are FREE of charge and open to the general public. Programs are usually held at the Waupaca Area Public Library on Monday evenings at 6:30. Other venues and days of the week are occasionally used for special seminars and musical programs (e.g., churches, or other sites that can accommodate larger crowds). Some programs might include controversial subject matter, but the Academy takes no position and seeks to provide balanced and reliable information.

Stay a while.
