Tuesday Book Club - March
Each month, we select a book to read and meet on the third Tuesday of the month to discuss our thoughts.
March's selection is Birnam Wood by Eleanor Catton.
"Mira Bunting is the brainchild behind Birnam Wood, an "activist collective" of guerrilla gardeners who plant on unused land (sometimes with permission) and scavenge (or steal) materials to grow food...On a recent scouting trip near Korowai National Park, she located a farming property...temporarily abandoned due to a recent earthquake. This land is soon to transfer ownership to an uber-rich tech CEO looking for a spot to doomstead. When the businessman, Robert Lemoine, catches Mira scouting on the land, he offers to bankroll the group to the tune of $100,000 since the act will help his bid for New Zealand citizenship. What could go wrong?...This blistering look at the horrors of late capitalism manages to also be a wildly fun read." --Kirkus reviews
