Book Clubs – Caro loves meeting you!
Caro loves to meet people reading or who have read her books. Through writing and sharing her experience Caro spread the word about living lightly on the earth. Each small gesture may not seem like much, but it makes a difference: from avoiding unnecessary packaging to demanding organic food from your local shop and restaurant. If we don’t demand change, it won’t happen, and our earth will slowly – or quickly – be poisoned by chemicals, plastic, and fossil fuels.
Send us your name, your book club name, the number of people you expect at your meeting, which of Caro’s books you read in your book club, and as much background as possible via the contact form, For online book club meetings Caro does not have a set fee but suggests you offer a donation to cover her time and costs.
