Page Turners Book Club

Welcome to the “Population Connection Page Turners” book club! Meetings to discuss books or long-form publications relevant to population issues will be held periodically throughout the year. Joining Population Connection Page Turners offers an opportunity to expand your knowledge and network with other Population Connection members and with Population Connection staff.

Although we encourage you to find these books at your local library or local, independent book store, they are also available to purchase on Amazon. Please consider using AmazonSmile when you shop—a small percentage of your purchase price will be donated to us, at no cost to you! To do so, please click this link first, to designate Population Connection as your charity of choice. Thank you for your support!

Please reach out to engage@popconnect.org if you have any questions about the club or how to participate. We hope you’ll be able to join us!

Upcoming Meeting

We hosted the final Page Turners meeting of 2022 with a lively discussion on The Ministry of the Future. It was wonderful to see so many passionate individuals connect with one another and dialogue about the publication’s realistic portrayal of the near future where climate change has caused economic and environmental chaos. Enjoy a photo from the meeting below!
