Goodall book to be explored by new book club


KENT—An Environmental Book Club will meet for the first time at March 4 at 4 p.m. at 45 on Main Coffee, Chocolate & Creamery. Discussion will center on Jane Goodall’s “The Book of Hope.”

“We plan to meet on a bi-monthly basis,” said organizer Deb Schlee. “At the first meeting, we will decide as a group what the book for the May meeting will be and what date is convenient for everyone to meet.”

The club expects to discuss a different book every two months. Those wishing more information or to signify that they will be at the March 4 session can contact Shlee at

In the book, Goodall and Douglas Abrams, bestselling co-author of “The Book of Joy,” explore one of the most sought-after and least understood elements of human nature: hope.

Goodall focuses on her “Four Reasons for Hope:” The Amazing Human Intellect, The Resilience of Nature, The Power of Young People and The Indomitable Human Spirit.
