Book Displays

- Hippies, Hipsters, and Earth Day  - 

“The poetry of earth is never dead” – John Keats from On the Grasshopper and Cricket

Take a moment this Earth Day to reflect on life, community, innovation, adventure, and compassion by indulging in poetry, memoirs, how to guides, travel stories, and environmental literature. Our Hipsters, Hippies, and Earth Day book display presents a variety of texts on hippie and hipster cultures and environmental insights. Take a chill weekend trip getaway to the mountains and relax with a nature read like Walden or Pilgrim at Tinker Creek. Plan your next trip with Off the Map or On the Road. Tackle some classics with selections like Infinite Jest or Catcher in the Rye. We hope you enjoy some cultural, environmental, and life reflections from this assortment of books.

This display was created in support of DU’s Internationalization Summit held on Thursday, April 12th, 2018. Browse these reads to prepare for the summit, which explores, “What's with a border? Inter/national engagement in a troubled world". Register for the summit at this site:
