Read Brave Saint Paul 2020: Our Climate Crisis

The current state of the environment affects all of us, from Saint Paul to countries across the globe. We have all played a part in how we got here, and we are all a part of the solution. Read Brave aims to unite residents around this topic — to seek understanding of the science, share stories about its impact, and work together toward solutions.

The two primary book choices for 2020 are The Marrow Thieves by Cherie Dimaline and Climate Justice by Mary Robinson.
