The Catholic Commission of Summit County hosts a monthly book club to read and discuss books on Catholic Social Teaching and current issues. We have read Compassion by Henri’ Nouwen, Tattoos on the Heart by Fr. Greg Boyle, S.J. Just Mercy by Bryan Stevenson and The Moral Imagination: The Art and Soul of Building Peace by John Paul Lederach.
In November, we are reading The Beekeeper’s Lament: How One Man and Half a Billion Honey Bees Help Feed America by Hannah Nordhaus. “Award-winning journalist Hannah Nordhaus tells the remarkable story of John Miller, one of America’s foremost migratory beekeepers, and the myriad and mysterious epidemics threatening American honeybee populations. In luminous, razor-sharp prose, Nordhaus explores the vital role that honeybees play in American agribusiness, the maintenance of our food chain, and the very future of the nation. With an intimate focus and incisive reporting, in a book perfect for fans of Eric Schlosser’s Fast Food Nation, Michael Pollan’s The Botany of Desire,and John McPhee’s Oranges, Nordhaus’s stunning exposé illuminates one the most critical issues facing the world today,offering insight, information, and, ultimately, hope.” Amazon description
