Author event highlights Brookline Climate Week

Author Kristin Kimball will visit Brookline this week for a discussion of her memoir, a centerpiece of Brookline Climate Week. Kimball will be at the main library on Thursday at 7 p.m. to discuss “The Dirty Life: a Memoir of Farming, Food, and Love,” about her and her husband’s plan to grow all the food a local community might need. The book is the subject of the Brookline Reads program this year . Each year the library picks a book for the community to read together, and this is the first time Climate Action Brookline has partnered with the library to hold Brookline Reads during Brookline Climate Week, which began Saturday and runs through Feb. 3. Other Climate Week events include a polar bear climate dash at Brookline High School Sunday at noon, and a discussion led by a panel of experts on climate policies that will be held in the main library’s Hunneman Hall at 7 p.m. Wednesday .
