Author to visit PCPL

The Putnam County Public Library is honored to welcome author Scott Russell Sanders on Nov. 9 at 6 p.m. Sanders will be giving a talk entitled “Taking Care of Home: Sustainability on a Small Planet.”

Our species, one among millions, is degrading the conditions for all life on this beautiful planet. As the human population swells and the power of our technology increases, we are consuming resources and disrupting natural systems at an accelerating pace. Because of this excess, earth’s poorest people are suffering now, and rich and poor alike will suffer in future generations. Scott Russell Sanders, author of “A Conservationist Manifesto” and twenty other books of fiction and nonfiction, will speak about how we might restore a balance between our way of life and the way of nature. Sanders will also have several of his books for sale and signing.
