Toni McNaron, Ph.D., award-winning professor emerita of English, University of Minnesota

 

Join other literature aficionados for thoughtful discourse over a cup of tea or coffee. Is nature a friend or adversary of humans? At times it can be hard to tell… As you encounter nature as it represented in this season’s literature, you will discuss what motivates us to cooperate with or resist the forces of nature outside of our purview. You can find these works at your local library, or through online providers.
