The Cathedral of All Souls in Biltmore Village will host a book launch celebration for Sacred Acts, Thurs., Apr. 26, 6 p.m. in the parish hall. Accent on Books will serve as the bookseller for this family-friendly event, co-sponsored by the Care of Creation committee and the Center for Spiritual Resources. The evening will include a reception, a reading by author Mallory McDuff, and environmental activities for children.
Sacred Acts is a unique anthology that documents people of faith working to address climate change through stewardship, spirituality, advocacy, and justice. The book features the voices of Bill McKibben and the Rev. Sally Bingham, as well as writers with ties to Western North Carolina such as the Rev. Brian Cole and Jill Rios.
Mallory McDuff teaches environmental education at Warren Wilson College, a unique liberal arts school that combines academics with work and service. A lifelong Episcopalian, she was raised in a family that integrated faith and environmental stewardship. She is the author of Natural Saints.
