Announcing: Seeds of Discent Book Club Q&A with Nic Esposito
We’re happy to announce our first “green” book club, partnering the Head and the Hand Press! In a city of people passionate about green living, we think it’s high time we begin bringing creative literature into the sustainability discussion. Let’s see what literature can teach us about natural living, and how entering into a character’s experiences can spark questions and ideas about urban farming, green living, and social change.

About Seeds of Discent
Seeds of Discent is a novel about four young people building an urban farm in Philadelphia while navigating their relationships, jobs, and life. The story is centered around Dan Varano, a young man in his mid twenties who has returned to his native Philadelphia after a few years on the road trying to escape the convention he was raised in. After learning about the value of a more natural life style, he finds that Philadelphia offers everything he has been looking for, although with a price.
Check out this novel about urban farmers in Philadelphia, trying to make sense of where their desire to grow food fits into the city landscape and into society.
