Enhance your Holidays with a Book Discussion
The daytime group is reading non-fiction and meeting at 10am on Thursday, November 21st. We are reading American Wolf: A True Story of Survival and Obsession in the West by Nate Blakeslee. In recent decades, conservationists have brought wolves back to the Rockies, igniting a battle over the very soul of the West. Nate Blakeslee tells the gripping story of one of these wolves, O-Six. O-Six is challenged on all fronts: by hunters, who compete with wolves for the elk they both prize; by cattle ranchers who are losing livestock and have the ear of politicians; and by other Yellowstone wolves who are vying for control of the stunningly beautiful Lamar Valley.
The evening group is reading the classic novel written a century ago: A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith. Francie Nolan learns early the meaning of hunger and the value of a penny. Like the Tree of Heaven that grows out of cement or through cellar gratings, resourceful Francie struggles against all odds to survive and thrive. Our discussion will be at 7pm on Monday, December 9th.
Each group meets here at UUFSD in the Palmer Library.
