Weather is an extraordinary novel that showcases Jenny Offill's adventurous prose, intelligence and lyricism across a range of disciplines, from deep ecology to mystical theology to the politics of collective action. The author’s vignette style reads almost like a journal filled with the main character’s reflections on daily life, increasing concern over climate devastation, and desires for spiritual enlightenment.  
 
The book has the potential to spark important conversations around identity and meaning in a time of global, existential crisis. We invite you to join us for one of those conversations.

"Tiny in size but immense in scope, radically disorienting yet reassuringly humane and completely irresistible...  Utterly exhilarating in its wit and intelligence...  Luminous."
— The Boston Globe
