The next author in our Spring Literary Luncheon series is Richard Powers, the National Book Award-winning author of Orfeo and The Echo Maker.
His latest, The Overstory, gives us a sweeping, impassioned novel of activism and resistance that is also a stunning evocation of — and paean to — the natural world. From the roots to the crown and back to the seeds, The Overstory unfolds in concentric rings of interlocking fables that range from antebellum New York to the late twentieth-century Timber Wars of the Pacific Northwest and beyond, exploring the essential conflict on this planet: the one taking place between humans and nonhumans.
