Literature of the Land: Spring 2016 Book Club

 

Join us for the spring 2016 session of Literature of the Land, a book club series hosted by the Helen Fowler Library. We’ll read 3 books over 3 months, focusing on a specific topic of interest.

This spring we’ll examine birds – in history, fiction, and the modern era – and how it relates to topics ranging from natural history to avian intelligence to the idea of home.

In March, we’ll start with Noah Strycker’s The Thing with Feathers: The Surprising Lives of Birds and What They Reveal About Being Human, an entertaining look at birds and the surprising world they inhabit.

In April, we’ll change gears and read Snapper by Brian Kimberling. This wry, witty set of interconnected short stories explores the Indiana backwater with young ornithologist Nathan, who makes a meager living observing the effect of climate change on the region’s songbirds.

In May, we’ll move on to looking at birds in the broader context of migratory animals with The Homing Instinct by Bernd Heinrich.

Registration is mandatory as attendance will be limited in number to allow for interactive discussion in a friendly group setting. The cost is $5 per session, $15 for all three sessions.

 

Each session has individual registration, please select all three date options with seperate registration if you would like to attend the entire series.

March 23 or 24
