Spring 2021 Meeting Schedule:

Monday, Feb. 15th @ 5:30pm-6:30pm

Book Club - "A Field Guide to Climate Anxiety"

Sign-in to this meeting to discuss a portion of A Field Guide to Climate Anxiety
(chapter TBD). You won’t need to have read the book to come and discuss – the topic will be fairly universal. If you want to get the book, free copies are available for you to read! Both the Hale and Manhattan libraries (on the second floors) have copies available for you to check out, and if you’d rather not handle a book that someone else handled, we can purchase an electronic copy for you (email lakonrad@ksu.edu) for more details!

Tuesday, Mar. 2nd @ 7:00pm-9:00pm

Film Screening - "Fire & Flood"

Sign-in to this meeting to participate in a film screening of Fire and Flood, a movie about queer resilience in the face of climate change. Stick around after the movie for discussion about how we, too, can be more resilient in the face of the challenges to our local community.
