1491: New Revelations of America before Columbus
by Charles Mann

  This book presents a view of the Americas before Columbus quite contrary to what so many of us learned in school.  It describes large populations landscaping and manipulating their world in ways we are only now beginning to understand.
FAQ: Do I have to read the book?” Well…… it is great if you do read the book. On the other hand, if the topic interests you, please come, even if you don’t always have time to do all the reading.
If you don’t have time to read the book, but would like to join the discussion, you can read the article that formed the basis for this book, originally published in The Atlantic Monthly in 2002.

The conversations are based on themes from books written by authors we WISH we could invite in person. Since the writers are elsewhere, we let their books speak for them and provide us with a point of departure. If this sounds intriguing, come check us out. So, is it required to read the book?  Well . . . it is great if you have read the book. However, if the topic interests you, please come even if you don’t always have time to do all the reading.

Green Conversations offers inquiring minds and friendly conversation. It is a project of the Ventura Unitarian Universalist Committee for Green Sanctuary with Citizens for Peaceful Resolutions.
