Hello all,

Our next book club meeting is on Monday, September 14, at 7:30 p.m. We'll be discussing Geek Love by Katherine Dunn.  We have a couple of copies available here at the library. Colleen will bring suggestions and a snack as her parting gifts to us!

October's book is Mind of the raven : investigations and adventures with wolf-birds by Bernd Heinrich.  From GoodReads: 

In Mind of the Raven, Bernd Heinrich, award - winning naturalist, finds himself dreaming of ravens and decides he must get to the truth about this animal reputed to be so intelligent.

Much like a sleuth, Heinrich involves us in his quest, letting one clue lead to the next. But as animals can only be spied on by getting quite close Heinrich adopts ravens, thereby becoming a "raven father," as well as observing them in their natural habitat, studying their daily routines, and in the process painting a vivid picture of the world as lived by the ravens. At the heart of this book are Heinrich's love and respect for these complex and engaging creatures, and through his keen observation andanalysis, we become their intimates too.

Read on, Amanda
