Climate Fiction Reading Group

A growing number of literary fiction is using climate change as a central theme. We meet once a month at Biskopshuset for a breakfast seminar to explore how climate change is lived, approached, and told. Taking the novel as a starting point we delve into topics on why it is difficult to let go of the known, on loss, anger and grief, and desirable visions of a future. Anyone interested is welcome but registration is mandatory. We have a few copies of each novel that you can borrow, first come first served.

During autumn 2019 we will read the books below. Click on the title to get to the registration page.
