This is a FREE event but we ask that you RSVP.
Throughout the month of January the L&T Book Club is reading ‘Radical Homemakers: Reclaiming Domesticity from a Consumer Culture’ by Shannon Hayes. Join us as we discuss this paradigm shifting book on Thursday, February 2 (6:30-8:00pm) at the Bedford Central Library in the town of Bedford (321 N Bridge Street, Bedford, VA 24523). You do not have to finish or read the book to attend this discussion.
Buy your copy now, or some copies are available for checkout from the Bedford Public Library System.
More about the book:
“…The great work we face requires rekindling the home fires. Radical Homemakers is about men and women across the U.S. who focus on home and hearth as a political and ecological act, and who have centered their lives around family and community for personal fulfillment and cultural change… [It is about] casting aside the pressures of a consumer culture to live in a world where money loses its power to relationships, independent thought, and creativity. If you ever considered quitting a job to plant tomatoes, read to a child, pursue creative work, can green beans and heal the planet, this is your book.”
The Land & Table book club is a way to engage with the core ideas and topics that are motivating a new generation to create a more resilient food system and vibrant local community life. We’ll be reading books about: eating local, self-reliant living, agrarian culture, growing food, culinary history, community resilience, going back-to-the-land, and more. This is not a book club that will be technical in nature. And if you don’t have a green thumb, you’ll still feel at home. You don’t have to grow your own food or be a homesteader or farmer to enjoy these books. But…you do have to be curious about reviving your connection with the land, with other people, and with the food you eat. And the reality is: tending to those connections is important for all of us. We meet on the first Thursday of each month and welcome anyone to our meetings – even if you have not read the book we will be discussing
WHEN: Thursday, February 2 (6:30 – 8pm)
WHERE: Bedford Central Library, 321 N Bridge St Bedford, VA 24523
WHO: Anyone! All are welcome – even if you did not read the book.
If you or your family members are under the weather, or not feeling well, we ask that you stay home and rest 🙂
