This lady, Kate Paterson is doing this pretty cool project where she planted a ton of trees in a forest and is having 100 authors, one each year, commit to releasing a book in a century when these trees will be ready to be printed on. The first author to commit to this is Margaret Atwood. I love her.

Here is the article Future Library Article

Edit: Just found this video too! From the beginning of the project.
