Skamania County Reads

What's happening? 

Join us for the tenth annual Skamania County Reads! Come to Stevenson Community Library or North Bonneville Community Library and pick up a copy of Finding the Mother Tree: Discovering the Wisdom of the Forest by Suzanne Simard beginning March 22. Read it and bring it back so others can read it, too.

We'll have a book discussion on Wednesday, May 1, 2024 from 6:00-7:00 pm accessible both in person and online, as well as other speakers and programs during the month, including an art exhibit. 

Underwritten and books provided by Friends of Stevenson and North Bonneville Community Libraries.

About the book

Suzanne Simard is a pioneer on the frontier of plant communication and intelligence; her TED talks have been viewed by more than 10 million people worldwide.

In this, her first book, Simard brings us into her world, the intimate world of the trees, in which she brilliantly illuminates the fascinating and vital truths--that trees are not simply the source of timber or pulp, but are a complicated, interdependent circle of life; that forests are social, cooperative creatures connected through underground networks by which trees communicate their vitality and vulnerabilities with communal lives not that different from our own.
