Happy Hour Book Club – April

For adults via Zoom. Registered participants will receive directions on how to connect to our virtual conversation!

Wednesday, April 29th  6:00-7:00 pm

This isn’t your average book club. Join us on the last Wednesday of the month from 6:00-7:00 pm for a lively discussion  around each month’s book that shines a light on all the different ways we connect to the natural world. From hiking to wellness to farming and physics (with lots more in between), there’s going to be something for everyone. We’ll keep a social distance and go online with our meetings so it’s still BYOB – from the comfort of your own home!

March/April title: Buzz Sting Bite by Anne Sverdrup-Thygeson
