A Special Evening with Mary M. Clare and Gary Ferguson


Thursday, October 28 | 6:30 pm 8:00 pm

The Bainbridge Island Museum of Art announces a special evening with Gary Ferguson and Mary M. Clare, authors of Full Ecology: Repairing Our Relationship with the Natural World.

The book focuses on how concerned readers might confront the climate crisis without losing heart. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed in the face of global climate breakdown. So how might we develop the inner resolve to confront it? Full Ecology, a collaboration between social-cultural psychologist Mary M. Clare and longtime science writer Gary Ferguson, suggests a path forward. Breaking the modern impulse to see humans as separate from nature, Clare and Ferguson encourage us to learn from the “supremely methodical and highly improvisational” natural systems that touch our lives. True change, they argue, begins with us stopping and questioning assumptions about our place in the world. 

Practical and poetic, scientific and spiritual, Full Ecology presents a strong, nourishing foundation for climate action. 

Admission for this event, hosted in partnership with Eagle Harbor Book Company, is free, although seating is limited, so please RSVP below. Proof of vaccination is required, or a recent negative COVID test, as well as an advance RSVP.
