Richard Powers, a Ten Evenings Author Presented by Pittsburgh Arts & Lectures

Uploaded by pghlectures
Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award winner Richard Powers’ sweeping, impassioned (and bestselling) novel of environmental activism, The Overstory unfolds in concentric rings of interlocking fable that range from antebellum New York to the late twentieth-century Timber Wars of the Pacific Northwest and beyond. The Overstory is a book for all readers who despair of humanity’s self-imposed separation from the rest of creation and who hope for the transformative, regenerating possibility of a homecoming. If the trees of this earth could speak, what would they tell us? “Listen. There’s something you need to hear.”
