Program Description


We will be reading and discussing "The Overstory: a Novel" by Richard Powers in this virtual edition of the Osprey Public Library's book discussion group! 

The Overstory, winner of the Pulitzer Prize in Fiction, is a sweeping, impassioned work of activism and resistance that is also a stunning evocation of—and paean to—the natural world. From the roots to the crown and back to the seeds, Richard Powers’s twelfth novel unfolds in concentric rings of interlocking fables that range from antebellum New York to the late twentieth-century Timber Wars of the Pacific Northwest and beyond. There is a world alongside ours—vast, slow, interconnected, resourceful, magnificently inventive, and almost invisible to us. This is the story of a handful of people who learn how to see that world and who are drawn up into its unfolding catastrophe.

Copies of the book are available through the Sarasota County Public Library catalog or available to download as an ebook at Cloud Library or Libby. Please contact the library at 941-861-1110 for help with the digital versions.
