Event Description

Join us for a walking book club discussion of Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall Kimmerer. While this event is free, we ask that anyone wishing to participate register so we can ensure we have enough discussion leaders to maintain proper social distancing.

This event is sponsored by Swamp Fox Bookstore, the Marion Public Library and Marion Parks & Recreation to foster a discussion about our connection to nature and how we can restore our community after last year's devastating derecho.

You can check out copies of Braiding Sweetgrass from the Marion Public Library or purchase a copy of the book (both hardcover and paperbacks available) from Swamp Fox Bookstore.

All participants must wear a mask and maintain social distancing guidelines. Depending on the weather, you may wish to bring water, bug spray, or sunscreen. You are encouraged to wear comfortable shoes.
