The Climate Diet is a practical, accessible guide we all need. It contains 50 achievable steps we can take to live our daily lives in a way that’s friendlier to the planet — from what we eat, how we live at home, how we travel, and how we lobby businesses and elected officials to do the right thing.

Greenberg is also the author of five other books, including the James Beard Award-winner Four Fish: The Future of the Last Wild Food.  He was a guest at Perrot Library in 2014 to discuss his book American Catch: The Fight for Our Local Seafood.  A former Greenwich resident and a Brunswick Class of ’85 graduate, Greenberg’s writing on oceans, climate change, health, technology, and the environment appears regularly in The New York Times and many other publications. He is a frequent guest on national television and radio, including Fresh Air with Terry Gross. His PBS Frontline documentary, The Fish on My Plate, was among the most viewed Frontline films of the 2017 season, and his TED Talk has reached over 1.5 million viewers to date. He lectures widely at institutions around the country ranging from Harvard to Google to the United States Senate.

Upcoming Event: GPW/PML Book Discussion of French Braid, by Anne Tyler

Greenwich Pen Women and Perrot Memorial Library continue their cosponsored book discussion series on Wednesday, November 2, 2022, from 7:00 to 8:00 pm.

The discussion will be facilitated by Greenwich Pen Women member Terry Kelleher.

From the beloved Pulitzer Prize–winning author [Anne Tyler]—a funny, joyful, brilliantly perceptive journey deep into one Baltimore family’s foibles, from a boyfriend with a red Chevy in the 1950s up to a longed-for reunion with a grandchild in our pandemic present. [excerpted from Amazon]
