First Unitarian Church of Honolulu

On Wednesday September 5th @ 7pm in Fred Harper Room – We will discuss Outline by Rachel Cusk. A woman writer goes to Athens in the height of summer to teach a writing course. Though her own circumstances remain indistinct, she becomes the audience to a chain of narratives, as the people she meets tell her one after another the stories of their lives.

On Wednesday October 3rd @ 7pm in Fred Harper Room – We will discuss The Songs of Trees (Stories from Nature’s Great Connector) by David George Haskell. “Here is a book to nourish the spirit. The Songs of Trees is a powerful argument against the ways in which humankind has severed the very biological networks that give us our place in the world. Listen as David Haskell takes his stethoscope to the heart of nature – and discover the poetry and music contained within.”
— Peter Wohlleben, author of The Hidden Life of Trees
