No Impact Man
Highland Park picks the book NO IMPACT MAN, by Colin Beaven, as their community read. NO IMPACT MAN chronicles "The Adventures of a Guilty Liberal Who Attempts to Save the Planet - and the Discoveries He Makes About Himself and Our Way of Life in the Process".
Beavan and his family take on life in the Big Apple au natural for a whole year. That means 12 months of fresh foods (minus refrigerator), hand-washed clothes (minus dryer), and no cars, buses, airplanes, OR electricity! We’re talking good old fashioned bicycles for transport and reading books by candlelight.
