Lowcountry Land Trust is excited to announce our new monthly online reading club: Wild Reads, a series of short stories and brief essays that explore our complex relationship to the natural environment.
Wild Reads will meet on the third Tuesday of each month, with the inaugural meeting to be held on September 21st at 12:00 PM. Our first selection is the short story “The Flora and Fauna of Las Vegas” by Ellen Meloy. It is a simultaneously hilarious and serious tale about the intersection of people and nature.
These readings have been selected by Paula Feldman, a long-time friend of LLT and chaired Professor of English at the University of South Carolina. With her expertise in literature and profound passion for conservation and the environment, she will guide us in pondering our human role in the natural world via works by some of our most remarkable and thought-provoking writers.
Meetings will take place via Zoom, with conversation among participants facilitated by Dr. Feldman.
