We're delighted to partner with Go Green Reads as we host an in-store event with author Dan Lambe, CEO of the Arbor Day Foundation. He'll be in conversation with The Book Stall's own Jon Grand, discussing his new book, Now Is the Time for Trees: Make an Impact by Planting the Earth's Most Valuable Resource. Timed to the organization's 150th anniversary, Now Is the Time for Trees celebrates the Arbor Day Foundation's important role in conservation, and energizes readers to plant trees as a means of individual climate activism. This program is free and open to the public.
More About the Book: Can you remember the last time you went an entire day without seeing a tree? They shape the neighborhoods we grow up in, the parks we play in, and the forests we explore, “trees literally frame our lives,” says Dan Lambe, author and CEO of the Arbor Day Foundation, “and that’s probably what I love most about this book—celebrating and sharing how trees impact people's lives in so many ways throughout the neighborhoods where we grew up and communities in which we live today.” Not only playing an important role in our past, our present, trees actively work to preserve our future. Every tree, whether in a rain forest or a city park, helps restore our environment by reversing the negative effects of climate change. With wildfires on the rise, global deforestation, and an ever-more volatile climate, the trees need our help—and we need theirs. To have a measurable and lasting impact against climate change, millions of trees need to be planted—and now. To protect our planet, everyone needs to join the movement to plant trees today. Featuring poignant messages from journalist Soledad O’Brien, actress Rosario Dawson, NASCAR driver Ryan Newman, YouTube sensation MRBEAST, and many others, Now Is the Time for Trees is the rallying cry we need to fight against climate change. Plant a tree today and grow a legacy of hope for the future.
