The narrative stories in At Home on an Unruly Planet touch on a wide range of themes such as community-based climate action, environmental justice, ecology, resilience, and climate grief—and offer both book groups and academic classrooms a unique way to talk about climate actions at home or in a community. The questions below provide a set of starting points for discussing the book with other readers. (Some of these are adapted from the Green Reads Book Club of the Illinois-based Ecology Action Center.)
A limited number of free copies of the book are also available to instructors affiliated with colleges and universities. If you are an academic instructor, the convener of a book group, a librarian, an environmental educator, or simply a book enthusiast who would like to organize a conversation, please use this form to request more information.
