MV Reads Together goes green

Original post made on Nov 1, 2011

Mountain View Reads Together is going all out this year. Not only are participants asked to read Bill McKibben's book, "Eaarth," but to also attend numerous November events, including a tour of Google's greenness, an event about urbanites raising bees and chickens, and a talk by a Buddhist nun about the spirituality of being green.

Lots of great events described in this article, but no details on times, places, or registration. Is there a website on this year's MV Reads Together project where we can get information?

"GSB" has kindly posted the link: mvreads.org

All of the events are open to Mtn. View residents as well as non-residents. Only two events (Tour of the SMaRT Station and The Future of Food) require pre-registration. You can just drop in on the others, though it's best to be early because we hope to draw large audiences for these events.

(I am a member of the Committee that is organizing these events.)
