The CLC Book Club will meet on Monday, April 8, 2019, at 7pm in the CLCW Room to discuss The Thing with Feathers: The Surprising Lives of Birds and What They Reveal About Being Human by Noah Strycker. Drawing from personal experience, cutting-edge science, and colorful history, Noah Strycker spins captivating stories about the birds in our midst and illuminates the startlingly intimate coexistence of birds and humans. With humor, style, and grace, he shows how our view of the world often, and remarkably, can be seen through the experience of birds. You have never read a book about birds like this one. The discussion will be led by Sue Kilber. Come join us
