  • Horizon Books

The Neahtawanta Center and the Groundwork Center for Resilient Communities are co-sponsoring a community read and discussion as part of The Bob Russell Resilience Reading Project. The book choice is the Pulitzer Prize nominated The Death and Life of the Great Lakes by Dan Egan. A group discussion will take place on November 6th from 7:00 to 8:30 PM at Horizon Bookstore on Front Street in Traverse City.
The Bob Russell Resilience Reading Project was created in memory of Bob Russell, a biologist, civic leader, and environmental activist who spent 30 years educating, prodding, and provoking the greater Grand Traverse Region to put resilience thinking at the forefront of our infrastructure, agricultural, economic, and recreational planning. Bob was co-founder, with Sally Van Vleck, of the Neahtawanta Research and Education Center in 1987, a Northern Michigan non-profit organization dedicated to creating a just world based on peace, resilience, and respect for the Earth’s systems via collaboration and community engagement. Sally continues as NREC’s director.

The Groundwork Center for Resilient Communities works to protect the environment, strengthen the economy and build community.
