“Authors and Anecdotes” Book Club: Featuring Patricia DeMarco
Join this week’s featured author, Patricia DeMarco, in our virtual book club series, “Authors and Anecdotes”, as she discusses her book, Pathways to our Sustainable Future. Pittsburgh has a rich history of social consciousness in calls for justice and equity. Today, the movement for more sustainable practices is rising in Pittsburgh. The book discusses how the city is addressing the issues of climate change and global pollution. The solutions are not necessarily found in technology alone. Rather, the pathways forward are based on the ethical and moral basis for making choices about the future.
