January Book Club: The Overstory, by Richard Powers

January 5 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

Free

The book club meets every “First Sunday” throughout the year from 1:30 to 3 p.m. in the Music Makers space at 46 West Main Street, Waynesboro, Pa.
This month, join us for a discussion of The Overstory, by Richard Powers.

Excerpt from Washington Post review of The Overstory:
“In 2016, Annie Proulx captured three centuries of logging in the New World with a fantastic novel called “Barkskins.” Given its enormous length and its encyclopedic examination of wood, “Barkskins” felt like a singular creation, but now it has a monumental companion planted right alongside it: Richard Powers’s “The Overstory.” This ambitious novel soars up through the canopy of American literature and remakes the landscape of environmental fiction.”

Inclement Weather Policy

The Arts Alliance of Greater Waynesboro (AAGW) recognizes the fact that inclement weather can affect the organizations’s ability to be open for business, hold events, and the employees’ and volunteers’ abilities to get to and attend events. The safety of the AAGW’s employees and volunteers is paramount to the organization. If any of the following events occur, Gallery 50, Music Makers, and all events associated with the AAGW are considered cancelled for that day:

(1) The governor declares a weather emergency and asks people to stay off the roads

(2) Waynesboro Area School District cancels school or after-school activities due to inclement weather

(3) Penn State Mont Alto cancels evening classes.

The AAGW will make every attempt to update social media to reflect the cancellation by 3pm for any evening events and by 8:30am for any morning events, but any notification stating one of the (3) events listed above has occurred should be considered notification of the cancellation.
