|Meet at Emelie Shroder's home. Call to let her know you are attending: 269-266-7299 by Saturday 10/7.||League Book Group. Two books have been selected for discussion: "Climate of Hope" by Michael Bloomberg and Carl Pope, and "Strangers in Their Own Land" by Arlie Russell Hochschild. Both books, to a greater and lesser extent, offer insights on climate change. The emphasis, though, is quite different. Climate is at the heart of Bloomberg and Pope's book, as they describe the issue, highlight its seriousness, and offer creative ways to address it. Hochschild, on the other hand, tells of her experience with people in Louisiana's bayou country whose livelihoods and way of life have been severely impacted by a sinkhole caused by a drilling accident.|
