Climate Fiction Reading Group

During four years (2018-2022) we were hosting a climate fiction reading group where we met once a month in Lund to explore how climate change is lived, approached, and told. Taking a novel as a starting point we delved into topics on why it is difficult to let go of the known, on loss, anger and grief, and desirable visions of a future. The reading group still lives on, but is now self-organised.

The reading group is no longer organised by Narrating Climate Futures. If you would like to start your own book club on climate fiction and need tips and advice, please send an email to Alexandra Nikoleris (contact information to the right).
