Eco Book Group at Toppings Bath

12 February @ 7:00 pm 9:00 pm

Eco Book Group at Toppings Bath

Through a blend of books on topics such as Ecology and Sustainability, Nature to Fiction, we want to explore the current Climate Change crisis, and what we can do about it.

So, we welcome you to our Eco Book Group, led by Alexander, whose aim is “to provide a space for people to approach challenging topics in a welcoming environment.” Join us and spend an evening talking about books over a glass of wine and nibbles.

The £5 you pay for your entry acts as a book voucher redeemable against next month’s book.

This month’s book is When I Sing, Mountains Dance, by Irene Sola.

Translated fiction with the Earth and its creatures at its core, When I Sing, Mountains Dance is a beautiful, lyrical song to grief and the healing aspects of nature, though she be cold and cruel.

When Domenec – mountain-dweller, father, poet, dreamer – dies suddenly, struck by lightning, he leaves behind two small children, Mia and Hilari, to grow up wild among the looming summits of the Pyrenees and the ghosts of the Spanish civil war. But then Hilari dies too, and his sister is forced to face life’s struggles and joys alone. As the years tumble by, the inhabitants of the mountain – human, animal and other – come together in a chorus of voices to bear witness to the sorrows of one family, and to the savage beauty of the landscape. This remarkable English-language debut is lyrical, mythical, elemental, and ferociously imaginative.
