the Understory Book Club: The Mushroom at the End of the World

Tuesday, February 4, 2020 - 5:45pm to 7:30pm

Bark's volunteer-led bookclub is called the Understory. Its mission is to maintain a robust and active book club as strategy to actively facilitate engagement with the all the different resources Bark's library. the Understory also strives to develop cultural competency in our organization and community and has begun to develop a lens with which we assess how well the resources in the library serve as anti-racist, de-colonial, and anti-white supremacist educational materials. the Understory frequently discusses issues of social justice as related to the environmental/conservation movement, the perspective of the author, and the representation (or lack of) of different cultural groups and knowledge in the books we read.
