Join Inter-Church Ministries’ Executive Director and Friends as we gather for conversation about this month’s PBS/NY Times ‘Now Read This’ Book Club’s pick, entitled “The Death and Life of the Great Lakes” by Dan Egan.  Lunch and learn with us on Thursday, May 3, 2018 from 12 noon to 1 pm at Tim Horton’s, E. 12th and Holland Streets, Erie, PA.

From the cover:  “The Great Lakes — Erie, Huron, Michigan, Ontario and Superior — hold 20% of the world’s supply of surface fresh water and provide sustenance, work and recreation for tens of millions of Americans.  But they are under threat as never before, and their problems are spreading across the continent…prize-winning reporter Dan Egan’s compulsively readable portrait of an ecological catastrophe happening right before our eyes, blending the epic story of the lakes with an examination of the perils they face and the ways we can restore and preserve them for generations to come.”

Dan Egan is a reporter for the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel and a senior water policy fellow at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.
