The Environmental Book Club

Dan Bloom at 2016 2016  reports that the first climate fiction book club began in February as part of a lead in to the 2016 Big Read in the St. Croix Valley in Minnesota. This definitely sounds like an adult club with the first two month’s titles being I’m With the Bears: Short Stories from a Damaged Planet, various authors, and Flight Behavior by Barbara Kingsolver. April’s book is The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck, the area’s Big Read. A May book will be selected by individual area cli-fi book clubs. The Cli-Fi Book Club was created by ArtReach St. Croix.

Scroll down at the 2016 2016 post  to see material from Joe Follansbee  (whom I kind of know in a we’ve-interacted-at-Google+-sort-of way--he has great material there) on reading The Grapes of Wrath as climate fiction.
