Graduate Women in Science and Engineering is hosting a winter break Book Club! We will be reading sections from “All We Can Save: Truth, Courage, & Solutions for the Climate Crisis” by Ayana Elizabeth Johnson and Katharine Keeble Wilkinson.

This book is a collection of provocative and illuminating essays from women at the forefront of the climate movement who are harnessing truth, courage, and solutions to lead humanity forward. We will be selecting a few of the book’s essays to discuss each week, so you won’t need to read the whole book front to back!

We will be meeting weekly on Mondays starting on 1/4/2021 with the choice between 5 PM – 6 PM and 8 PM – 9 PM EST to accommodate all of our members in different time zones across the globe.

You may purchase the book if you wish. We submitted a purchase request for an e-book through the university library, but it was unfortunately declined. The full e-book is available through most public library systems. Please check with your public library! It is available through the Boston Public Library system.

To accommodate members who do not have access to the full book, PDFs of the selected essays will be shared.

Please fill out this form to be included in future updates!
