Nature Lover’s Book Club to read “The Invention of Nature”

Calling all nature enthusiasts and book worms for the Bucks County Audubon Society Nature Lover’s Book Club to be

held at the Doylestown Bookshop every 4 th Thursday of the month at 6:15pm! On April 27th, we shall be discussing

“The Invention of Nature-Alexander von Humboldt’s New World”, by Andrea Wulf.

This award-winning book reveals the extraordinary life of the visionary German naturalist Alexander von Humboldt

(1769-1859) and how he created the way we understand nature today. Perceiving nature as an interconnected global

force, Humboldt discovered similarities between climate zones across the world and predicted human-induced climate

change. He turned scientific observation into poetic narrative, and his writings inspired naturalists and poets such as

Darwin, Wordsworth and Goethe but also politicians such as Jefferson.

The group is open to anyone who has a passion for the environment and wants to share and discuss with like-minded

individuals. To get started on your reading journey, visit our blog site, www.natureloversbookclub.blogspot.com! Here

you will find discussion questions, future book lists, and a link to purchase the book (at discount!) from the Doylestown

Bookshop. We welcome your insights and input for these readings!
