What We’re Reading
Entangled Life: How Fungi Make Our World, Change Our Minds, and Shape Our Future by Merlin Sheldrake
Before reading this book, you might know a little bit about fungi, but perhaps have no idea exactly how incredible they are—or how dependent we are on them. The writing can get very scientific at times, but it is full of fact after amazing fact and reminds the reader on every page how utterly astonishing and beautiful the natural world can be. If you like nature writing or are just a curious sort that likes to know more about everything then this is the book for you. Fans of Braiding Sweetgrass might want to check it out too. Both books are full of their author’s reverence and wonder for the world and leave the reader in awe, but also remind you that fungi is a demonstrable example of the interconnectedness of all living systems, something at the heart of Sweetgrass
