South Street Seaport Museum April Book Club event: As Long as Grass Grows: The Indigenous Fight for Environmental Justice, from Colonization to Standing Rock by Dina Gilio-Whitaker

April 24, 2023

South Street Seaport Museum announces that the April selection of the Seaport Museum Book Club is As Long as Grass Grows: The Indigenous Fight for Environmental Justice, from Colonization to Standing Rock by Dina Gilio-Whitaker. This maritime-themed book club is presented in partnership with McNally Jackson Books Seaport. Literary selections will be announced one month in advance, and both Seaport Museum staff and special guests will stir up lively discussions, informed by a shared love of literature, culture, and history.

The April session of the Seaport Museum Book Club will feature a conversation on As Long as Grass Grows by Dina Gilio-Whitaker on Monday, April 24, 2023, at 6:30pm, at McNally Jackson Books Seaport––at 4 Fulton Street, just a few doors down from the Museum. For more information and to register for this free, all-ages event, visit seaportmuseum.org/bookclub.

This month, we look through the unique lens of “Indigenized environmental justice” that activist and researcher Dina Gilio-Whitaker explores in her publication. Together, we will explore an accessible history of Indigenous resistance to government and corporate incursions on their lands.

As Long as Grass Grows is available for purchase at most bookstores. Register for the April meeting of the Seaport Museum Book Club today to receive a 10% off discount code for online orders of the book at McNally Jackson Books.
