What does it really take to live eco-effectively? For one year, Colin Beavan swore off plastic and toxins, turned off his electricity, went organic, became a bicycle nut, and tried to save the planet from envioronmental catastrophe while dragging his young daughter and his Prada-wearing wife along for the ride. Together they attempted to make zero impact on the environment while living right in the heart of Manhattan, and this is the sensatioanl, funny. and consciousness-raising story of how they did it. With No Impact Man/, Beavan found that no-impact living is worthwhile--richer, fuller, and more satisfying in the bargain. No Impact Man is this year's book for the Common Reading Experience.
Spring book discussions include Little Bee by Chris Cleave, Wednesday, February 23 and The Line by Olga Grushin, Wednesday, March 30. Find out more about upcoming Friends of the Library Book Discussion.
