BRIT Reads Book Club: The Invention of Nature (hybrid)

Note: this event will be offered in person and online.   Join the book club meeting in person at the Oak Conference Room in the BRIT building or over Zoom!

Alexander von Humboldt (1769-1859) was the most famous scientist of his age, a visionary German naturalist and polymath whose discoveries forever changed the way we understand the natural world. Among his most revolutionary ideas was a radical conception of nature as a complex and interconnected global force that does not exist for the use of humankind alone. In North America, Humboldt’s name still graces towns, counties, parks, bays, lakes, mountains, and a river. And yet the man has been all but forgotten.
