The Books and The Bees Nature Lovers Book Club – Zoom

Register at GranvilleLibrary.org

Our next Nature Lovers Book Club will meet on Zoom on Feb 10th. Join in for a casual, engaging discussion. We will be reading Fathoms: The World in the Whale. “In Fathoms, Rebecca Giggs rips the metaphors off whales and brings us closer than we can usually get to the creatures themselves. Along the way, she shows us how intimately whales are shaping our lives, how they change air quality, and crime, and even our conception of time. I can’t stop thinking about the connections she has unearthed, how a whale is connected to a meteor, a mother’s breast, a landfill. Under the spell of her deliciously evocative prose, you get the sense that you are truly, finally, glimpsing a whale in full glory. Like the busks she writes about—tiny missives carved into whalebone corsets by sailors—this book leaves an imprint.”
—Lulu Miller, author of Why Fish Don’t Exist and cofounder of NPR’s Invisibilia
