Beat the summer heat and join us from the comfort of your own home or office for our Water Is Life Summer Reading Zoom Series! We are excited to feature two local Alabama authors and one Southeastern author as we discuss their newly published books. The topics range from restoring rivers to the poetry of sustainable home building to the muddy story of environmental injustice in the Mississippi River Delta. Head out to your favorite local bookstore or your local library and pick up a copy or purchase from our favorite Thank You Books in Birmingham!  We can’t wait to see you on Zoom!

 

Water is Life: Southern Rivers with Scot Duncan

Southern Rivers: Restoring America’s Freshwater Biodiversity explores the Southeast’s imperiled river systems and solutions for preserving them in the face of habitat loss, climate change, and extinction. The region’s rivers are the epicenter of North American freshwater biodiversity and are the top global hotspot for important aquatic animals including mussels, turtles, snails, crayfish, and fish, many of which have made important contributions to southern life and culture. As threats increase, it may seem necessary to choose between nature conservation and human needs, but Duncan persuasively demonstrates that this is a false choice. Conservation enhances human life.
