Nature's Book Nook Club: The Invention of Nature by Andrea Wulf

Thu, April 6, 2023 6:30PM - 8PM
Greetings everyone, I am excited to introduce the premier book discussion of Nature’s Book Nook Book Club. We will be reading one book a month and discuss it the first Thursday of the following month. The selection for March is The Invention of Nature: Alexander von Humboldt's New World by Andrea Wulf. We will meet on Thursday, April 6 at 6:30 pm for 90 minutes. Please contact me for meeting details (locations may vary).

Alexander von Humboldt (1769-1859) was the most famous scientist of his age but little is known or remembered about this adventurous explorer until Wulf’s publication. He influenced and inspired people that we do remember - Darwin, Goethe, Wordsworth, among others. His revolutionary thinking changed the way we think about nature, seeing it “... as a complex and interconnected global force that does not exist for the use of humankind alone.” His ideas and discoveries continue to influence and guide our understanding and protection of our world today.

This book was published in 2015, is 337 pages and was on of the New York Times Best Books of the Year for 2015, in addition to many other awards. For more information about the book, the author, awards, etc. visit:
