This winter we will be reading and discussing “Time and a Place: An Environmental History of Prince Edward Island” (2016). Our discussions will probe into past and present environmental changes on PEI, and how and why the Islanders are particularly sensitive to environmental issues and enmeshed in their landscape in a way that is unique among Canadians.
During our second discussion we will focus on the chapter: “Two centuries of energy on Prince Edward Island” by Kathleen Stuart. Those interested to have a more detailed look at the energy history of PEI during 1973-1990 can also read the book by Alan MacEachern “The Institute of Man and Resources: An Environmental Fable” (2003).
We are thrilled that the authors and editors of these books, Ms. Kathleen Stuart, Dr. Alan MacEachern, and Dr. Josh MacFadyen, will join our discussion.
“Time and a Place: An Environmental History of Prince Edward Island” and “The Institute of Man and Resources: An Environmental Fable” are available at the Robertson Library.
