Book Discussion: The Wizard and the Prophet
August 8 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
The Wizard and the Prophet: Two Remarkable Scientists and Their Dueling Visions to Shape Tomorrow’s World
by Charles C. Mann (Knopf; 1st edition (January 23, 2018)
Charles Mann explores two central, but not widely known, protagonists in our climate change dilemma and, in that process, provokes the question we need to ask ourselves: what values and beliefs do we carry into our assessment of climate change? Will we invent our way out of it or will we learn a new way to balance our species with nature? Are we Wizards or are we Prophets? These dueling visions Illuminate the nature of our world views while comprehensively framing the nature of the challenge in our on-going journey to make a more sustainable future.
We hope you’ll join us for a dialectic discussion. All are welcome! (even if you haven’t read the book)
Book is available from Firefly in Kutztown, your intrepid local book-store, or on-line.
