Our first EE Book Club meeting brought together community members to discuss local author Laura Sanchez’s Freaking Green. Sanchez tells a humorous tale of an Albuquerque family forced to cut their carbon emissions drastically to win an inheritance of millions. Freaking Green has won the 2014 NM Press Women’s Zia Award and the 2014 Green Book Festival Award. Our book club readers liked it, and we hope to have Sanchez come speak at a future EE Over Lunch gathering.
The next book is The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind by William Kamkwamba and Bryan Mealer. (Buy the book here to support EEANM through Amazon Smile!) We’ll meet January 14 at 6:30pm in the Albuquerque downtown area. We will try to have an online option, such as Google Hangouts, too.
