Ryerson Reads is a vibrant group of nature enthusiasts that gather for lively discussions of American environmental literature. The book talks are led by Benjamin Goluboff, professor of English at Lake Forest College and an expert in American literature. Insightful and informative discussions cover the historical context, impact and influence of important works in the environmental literature movement.
Our upcoming Ryerson Reads is on Wednesday, May 22nd, from 7 pm – 8:30 pm. This discussion will focus on our 2019 Smith Nature Symposium Awardee Amory Lovins’ groundbreaking book, Natural Capitalism. Celebrating its 20-year anniversary, this incredible work revealed why environmental responsibility is highly profitable for businesses long before sustainability was a pillar of corporate America.
