 The CLC Book Club will meet on Monday, Dec. 10th, at 7:00 P.M. in the CLCW Room to discuss Letters from Yellowstone by Diane Smith. In the spring of 1898, A. E. (Alexandria) Bartram, a botanist, traveled to Yellowstone National Park to join a field study to collect, classify, and analyze the plant life in the park. Written as a series of letters, the book tells of the summer that she spent in Yellowstone along with a group that included scientists and naturalists, railroad men and developers, and other eccentric characters with differing views on science, nature, economics, ecology, and feminism. The novel captures life at the turn of the 20th century and one woman’s attempt to take charge of her life. The discussion will be led by Betsy Berg. Come join us!  The CLC Book Club will meet on Monday, Jan. 14, 2019, at 7:00 P.M. in the CLCW Room to discuss Notorious RBG: The Life and Times of Ruth Bader Ginsburg by Irin Carmon & Shana Knizhnik. The discussion will be led by Elizabeth Uhlig. Come join us!
