About Water Always Wins:

“In this quietly radical book, science journalist Erica Gies introduces us to innovators in what she calls the Slow Water movement who start by asking a revolutionary question: What does water want? Using close observation, historical research, and cutting-edge science, these experts in hydrology, restoration ecology, engineering, and urban planning are already transforming our relationship with water.”

The Academy Book Circle will meet on Zoom every other Wednesday from 1–2 p.m., July 27 through August 24, 2022, to discuss each section in a welcoming and supportive environment. Drop-ins are welcome, but registration is required. Attend one session or all three!
