This month we will read and discuss Prodigal Summer by Barbara Kingsolver. According to the New York Times:
Barbara Kingsolver’s new novel is all about sex, and she doesn’t waste much time on foreplay. As the book opens, Deanna Wolfe, a reclusive wildlife biologist on the far side of 40, is patrolling the woods on Zebulon Mountain, a wild patch of southern Appalachia where she works as a ranger. ”Here and now,” Kingsolver writes, ”spring heaved in its randy moment. Everywhere you looked, something was fighting for time, for light, the kiss of pollen, a connection of sperm and egg and another chance.”
Haven’t read the book yet? No worries. Come join us. 5:00-6:00, Thurs. March 9 at Cultivate Co-op Cafe, 901 Elm St. Please note the earlier time. (No potluck: the cafe will be open and serving.)
The evening will coincide with Lake to River Co-op’s Online Market pick-up night. The monthly gatherings are free, open to the public and wheelchair accessible.
