Afternoon Book Discussion

Date: 
10/14/14, 2:00pm - 3:15pm

This week's selection is "Remarkable Creatures" by Tracy Chevalier. Growing up fascinated with the fossils she collected on the beach, Mary Anning blossomed into a skillful amateur archaeologist. When she discovers an intriguing fossilized skeleton, townspeople and religious authorities react viciously. Barred from the scientific community and in love with an unavailable man, Mary turns to Elizabeth Philpot, a London exile, for friendship. Together, they look to make their way in the evolving nineteenth century through archaeology and scientific discovery. This book is available two weeks prior to discussion. Adults. Room 1.
