Trees & Transcendence: Spirit, Climate & Water
Save the date! On March 19, 2016, we’re producing a day-long gathering inspired by environmental visionary Diana Beresford-Kroeger and her mission to educate people about the ecological and spiritual importance of trees. Following the West Coast premier screening of her new film, Call of the Forest: The Forgotten Wisdom of Trees, Diana herself will set the tone for a series of moderated panel conversations with six other authors whose work examines these same themes. We’ll consider the global forest from both perspectives—from climate change’s imminent imperative of reforestation and restoration of healthy watersheds to profound personal stories of spiritual interconnection with the natural world. More details next month. Contact Steve Costa to learn about becoming a funding partner or sponsor.
Community Supported Bookstore
Independent bookstores have been hard hit by chain stores, online book discounters, and e-books. Our CSB (Community Supported Bookstore) program helps Point Reyes Books navigate the crests and troughs of running a small operation while giving you a real stake in our continuing success as a sustainable and productive local business. Purchase a membership for $150 or more to use against your future purchases. You’ll get special member benefits, including a 5% discount on book purchases. We can special order most in-print books and have them in the store within a week. We can also find out-of-print books.
