Author aims to bring kids back to nature
Thin Green Line blogger and senior Pottstown correspondent extraordinaire Evan Brandt has thoughtfully brought to my attention to the following earth- and book-friendly local event:
The Berks County Conservancy has organized a “Last Child in the Woods” presentation, bringing author Richard Louv to Reading. On Tuesday, March 24, the conservancy will try to inspire educators, parents and community leaders to bring children back-to-nature. Louv’s inspiring work proves children need nature as much as nature needs children.
The public is invited to a special Meet & Greet with Richard Louv on Tuesday, March 24, at 10 a.m. at the Abraham Lincoln - a Wyndham Historic Hotel, located at 100 North Fifth Street in Reading. This is a unique opportunity to meet Mr. Louv personally before his lecture that evening.
Kindly contact Kathy Seyler at the Berks County Conservancy (610-372-4992 ext. 100) to RSVP your attendance by March 17. Refreshments will be provided.
If you can't make the daytime meet & greet, or in addition to meeting the author, you may wish to attend Louv's full presentation, “An Evening with Richard Louv” on March 24 at 5 p.m. at the Reading Area Community College Miller Center for the Arts in Reading.
