The Roger Tory Peterson Institute is pleased to announce that it has been selected to host a series of Humanities NY Reading and Discussion programs. Participants will read a selection of books which are connected by the theme “Place and Story”; each title explores the myriad of ways that the American landscape influences our experiences and way of life. During each of these sessions, participants will gather at RTPI with others from the community to discuss what they’ve read in an informal conversation facilitated by RTPI’s Communications Coordinator and Environmental Educator, Melanie Smith. Books for the following month’s session will be distributed at the end of each discussion.
The next Humanities New York Reading and Discussion session will be held on Friday, June 21st from 6-7pm at which time “Red-Tails In Love” by Marie Winn will be discussed. This program is free open to the public, and a limited number of loaner books are now available to sign out at RTPI. A subsequent session will be held in July to discuss “The Grizzly Years” by Doug Peacock. The program schedule and book synopses are available on RTPI’s website at https://rtpi.org/rtpi-to-host-humanities-ny-reading-and-discussion-series/ You need not attend both sessions to participate – choose the title(s) and time(s) that fit your interests and schedule! This offering was sponsored by a Humanities New York Vision/Action Grant. Please contact Melanie Smith at firstname.lastname@example.org or 716.665.2473 ext 221 for more information.
