The Transition Marquette County Reading Group will have a conversation about the book “The Practice of the Wild” by Gary Snyder on Thursday, Jan 9, at 7pm in the Conference Room at Peter White Public Library in Marquette. Covering topics ranging from Buddhist belief to wildness to wildlife and the world, Snyder’s meditative essays are widely recognized as one of the central texts on wilderness and the interaction of nature and culture. Anyone is welcome to join the conversation. It would help to have at least started to read the book. For more information call 226-3314 or email email@example.com.
