Hope Jahren Author Post
First of all, thank you for reading books! In a world full of distractions, you are giving your time and energy to written ideas, thoughts and feelings … and teaching others to do the same. What would the world be without you? While we’re on the topic, I’d love for you to take a look at my new book for young people, “The Story of More” perhaps there is something inside that would interest you – and the students that you teach!
Like many of the people that I meet each day, I have plenty of questions about Climate Change: mostly along the lines of What should I believe? and Should I be afraid? Because a teacher’s job is to answer questions, I did my research and wrote a book entitled “The Story of More.” It is the book full of the answers that I found for the questions above. I’ve now re-written the adult version to a version that will be more accessible — and more interesting — to young people. It’s full of simple explanations, personal stories, our shared history of Global Change and what we can do to bring forward a brighter future – what it doesn’t contain is preaching and propaganda. It is the science that I needed to write, and maybe — just maybe — it contains answers and solutions that your students want to consider. It is a book on Climate Change that is truly for everyone, regardless of their “politics.”
I’ll close this note with my very best to you, from one book lover to another!
