EVENT: Book Reading: The Last Straw by Bryant Holsenbeck

DATE: April 11, 2019 from 7 PM - 8 PM


COST: Free

Environmental artist Bryant Holsenbeck had long wondered where trash goes when we throw it “away.” Realizing that what we discard never really goes away, she became concerned about all the disposable plastic that piles up in landfills and clogs our streams. Bryant began saying NO to single-use plastic, and she spent a year discovering ways to live without it. The Last Straw: A Continuing Quest for Life Without Disposable Plastic documents her journey and the creative alternatives she found. Free and open to the public.
