Our award-winning Community Read brings books and people together to spur discussion about an important idea or topic. For the ninth year of our Community Read, we’re asking readers: What would a tree tell us if we just took the time to listen?
In Part 1 of his book The Songs of Trees: Stories from Nature’s Great Connectors, David Haskell explores the network of life and believes that trees are a central part of those connections. Haskell will be joined by ethnobotanist Chief Dennis Coker of the Lenape Tribe of Delaware for a conversation about the interconnections of trees and humans, and how those ideas relate to our region.
