Bushwick Book Club Oakland presents: Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall Kimmerer


Drawing on her life as a botanist, a mother, and a member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation, author Robin Wall Kimmerer shows how other living beings—asters and goldenrod, strawberries and squash, salamanders, algae, and sweetgrass—offer us gifts and lessons, even if we’ve forgotten how to hear their voices.


You can read the book ahead of time, or come knowing nothing about it. Either way, we hope hearing the freshly written songs from our featured book club artists will delight you, intrigue you, and maybe even inspire you to create something new of your own!


Suggested donation $15-20, no one turned away.
