Books to be reviewed during 2023:

March 27, Ann Fisher will lead the discussion of  Blue Mind: The Surprising Science That Shows How Being Near, In, On, or Under Water Can Make You Happier, Healthier, More Connected, and Better at What You Do by Dr. Wallace J Nichols.

May 22 (avoiding Memorial Day):  Dave Kowalewski will lead the discussion of David Baron’s The Beast in the Garden: A Modern Parable of Man and Nature.  The story of Boulder’s struggles to coexist with its wild neighbors, reconstructing the paved-with-good intentions path that led to Boulder’s first recorded fatal mountain lion attack. The book reveals the subtle yet powerful ways in which human actions are altering wildlife behavior, and demonstrates that the death in Colorado signaled the start of a worrisome trend that continues today. Ultimately, it is about our nation's future, where suburban sprawl and wildlife-protection laws are pushing people and wild animals into uncomfortable, sometimes deadly proximity.

July 24:  Grace Jaskiewicz is leader for discussing Marcia Bonta's Appalachian Spring.  She lived on a mountain not far from State College, PA with her husband and sons.  This book describes her reactions to the end of a long winter and the rebirth of springtime.

September 25:  Dave Hafer will lead the discussion of Mitch Troutman's The Bootleg Coal Rebellion, about the history of mining for anthracite coal under dangerous conditions, and the reluctance of mine owners to accept labor unions.

November 27:  Kathy Henne will lead the discussion of Scott Weidensaul's A World on the Wing: the Global Odyssey of Migratory Birds. What we’ve learned of these key migrations—how billions of birds circumnavigate the globe, flying tens of thousands of miles between hemispheres on an annual basis— is nothing short of extraordinary. Scott Weidensaul (pronounced "Why-densaul") has lived almost all of his life among the long ridges and endless valleys of eastern Pennsylvania
