“A short read that can be enjoyed anywhere, it has the power to transport readers to the place they cherish most.”
Rabbi Deborah Miller, Books and Blintzes
Turning Homeward – Restoring Hope and Nature in the Urban Wild is a great choice for a book club. It’s short (160 pages) but substantive, affordably priced, and goes beyond urban nature to explore the creation of a marriage, pregnancy, the death of an infirm parent, the Jewish concept of tikkun olam (repair of the world), and the challenges of making a home in a new community. Turning Homeward resonates with a broad array of readers regardless of their interest in nature or the environment.
I’m working on a Reading Guide for Turning Homeward and will post it here…soon!

I’m available to talk with book clubs in person or via Skype. This podcast for Bainbridge Community Broadcasting was done over Skype and can give you a good idea of what a conversation with your book club will be like.
You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’d love to hear from you, and we’ll have a lot to talk about, I’m sure.
“Thoughtful, complicated…this book exudes humility and hope.”
