The Wizard and the Prophet: Two Remarkable Scientists and Their Dueling Visions to Shape Tomorrow’s World

by Charles C. Mann (Knopf; 1st edition (January 23, 2018)

In his prologue, Charles Mann introduces us to his two central characters and in that introduction, raises the question in ourselves of what values and beliefs do we carry into our climate change situation?  Will we invent our way out or will we discover a new way to balance our species with nature?  Are we Wizards or are we Prophets?  Hopefully at least a little of both. The way Charles Mann presents these dueling visions will help us see our own beliefs and motives in our on-going journey to make a more sustainable future.

We hope you’ll join us for a dialectic discussion. All are welcome! (even if you haven’t read the book)

Book is available from Firefly in Kutztown, your intrepid local book-store, or on-line.
