Eaarth: Making a Life on a Tough New Planet

This year’s Mountain View Reads Together book choice is Eaarth: Making a Life on a Tough New Planet, the most recent book by environmental writer Bill McKibben. The author describes a drastically changed planet he calls “Eaarth,” yet also offers hope via new ways of living. McKibben is the founder of the grassroots group 350.org, dedicated to solving climate change.

Mountain View Reads Together, currently in its sixth year, is a project that creates a shared community experience by offering a series of events related to one book. All of Mountain View is encouraged to read or listen to the chosen book, and participate in related events. 


A series of free activities that are related to the themes of the book will be offered throughout November. For more information visit mvreads.org or www.mountainview.gov/library.

October 31st is the deadline for the art contest. Create a work of art in any medium, suggested by the themes of the book http://www.mvreads.org/files/ArtContestRules.pdf
