Nature & Books Spring Discussion Series on Zoom

Co-sponsored with The Nature Museum


Put some Spring in your step with a focus on nature and books, in virtual community with others! The Spring series begins in April, with a deep look at the emotions of animals in well-known Dutch-American primatologist Frans de Waal’s lovely, compassionate book, Mama’s Last Hug. Kirkus Reviews states, “De Waal turns his years of research into a delightful and illuminating read for nonscientists, a book that will surely make readers want to grab someone’s arm and exclaim, “Listen to this!”


In May we go deep (in the ground) with Merlin Sheldrake’s fascinating book about fungi, Entangled Life. “Mycelium, Sheldrake says, is the tissue that holds together much of the world.”  In fact, a reviewer for the Guardian states that this title itself is a “door-opener” book--a book “with a specialist subject in which it finds pathways leading everywhere. This is a genre devoted to connectedness in all directions, and is one well suited to our times. Sheldrake’s book is a very fine example.”
