The Book Stall (811 Elm Street in Winnetka) proudly partners with Go Green Reads to welcome Dan Lambe, author of “Now is the Time for Trees” and CEO of The Arbor Day Foundation, on Monday, July 11 at 6:30 pm. This special Go Green Reads author event features the book “Now is the Time for Trees.” Released to time with The Arbor Day Foundation’s 50th anniversary and celebrate the organization’s important role in conservation, Lambe’s book hopes to energize readers to plant trees as a means of individual climate activism. This program is free and open to the public.

More About the Book: “Now is the Time for Trees” not only inspires environmental action, it provides simple first steps, with a how-to guide to choosing the right tree and foolproof advice for planting success. To protect our planet, everyone needs to join the movement to plant the millions of trees needed to have a measurable and lasting impact against climate change. Every tree, whether in a rain forest or city park, helps restore our environment by reversing the negative effects of climate change. For every copy of “Now is the Time for Trees” sold, a tree will be planted with the royalties from the sale.
