Ethico Bookshelf – October reads

  • Here’s what our reading list looks like this month. Pick a title of your choice and join us!

When Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring hit the book-stands back in the 1960s, the climate crisis was still a distant reality. And yet, the book made the right kind of noise and attracted the right kind of attention towards environmental urgencies. Cut to 2020, the talk around environmental degradation is far more pressing. Thankfully, there are a host of titles that help break down and build up the environment conversation.

To navigate better through the dense jungle of eco reads, librarian teacher and eco crusader in her own right, Sheena Kelly, brings you a bunch of 5 titles every month. Split into 5 different categories – Picture Book, Elementary, Mid-level, High-level, Adult – these books choose different styles and narratives to address the climate crisis.

But it’s not all grim and dystopian (well there’s that too). There are happy tales, informative insights, actionable changes and so much more!

Introducing the October stack!
