Open to all

Robin Wall Kimmerer’s Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge, and the Teachings of Plants was published in 2013 by Milkweed Press, an independent nonprofit publisher. The paperback edition made the New York Times bestseller list in March 2020 and by November 27, 2022, had remained there for 135 weeks.

Kimmerer, a botanist and a SUNY Distinguished Teaching Professor of Environmental Biology, weaves scientific knowledge and the wisdom of her ancestors, the Potawatomi, into a beautiful tapestry of stories about the natural world and our responsibility to preserve it for posterity.

Martha’s Book Group will meet on Tuesday, January 10, at 4 pm to discuss this fascinating book and how word-of-mouth publicity made it into a global bestseller
