The Go Green Reads Book Group discusses "The Nature Fix"

The Go Green Reads discussion group meets to discuss The Nature Fix: Why Nature Makes Us Happier, Healthier, and More Creative.

From forest trails in Korea, to islands in Finland, to eucalyptus groves in California, in The Nature Fix, Florence Williams investigates the science behind nature's positive effects on the brain. Delving into brand-new research, she uncovers the powers of the natural world to improve health, promote reflection and innovation, and strengthen our relationships. As our modern lives shift dramatically indoors, these ideas--and the answers they yield--are more urgent than ever.

Florence Williams is a journalist and contributing editor to Outside magazine. Her work has appeared in the New York Times, the New York Times Magazine, and National Geographic among others. Her first book, Breasts: A Natural and Unnatural History, was a New York Times Notable Book of 2012 and the winner of the Los Angeles Times Book Prize in Science and Technology. Williams lives in Washington, DC.

The Go Green Reads discussions are free and open to the public. This discussion group started in the spring of 2017. They focus on environmental and sustainable topics such as consumption, waste management, farming/gardening, native plants, water, capitalism, and climate change, just to name a few. The goal of Go Green Reads is to spread awareness and inspire collective and individual action. In addtion to discussing books, the group screens movies, engages speakers, and organizes local field trips.
