Join the BRIT Reads Book Club in February as we discuss Half Earth, the latest book by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Edward O. Wilson. In this work, called "his most urgent book to date", the author lays out a proposal for preserving the biodiversity of our planet and saving ourselves from mass extinction. 

“Wilson’s passion for the planet shines through on these pages. He looks at life in its broadest, grandest sweep…Wilson is a thinker in the tradition of Alexander von Humboldt.”
Matthew Price, The National
