Naturalist Book Club

July 28 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

This month, we discuss Natural History, an engaging compilation of historical fiction short stories by Andrea Barrett, winner of the National Book Award. 

Excerpt from publisher’s website:

“A masterful collection of…six exquisite stories…set largely in a small community in central New York state… spanning the decades between the Civil War to the present day… Told with Barrett’s characteristic elegance, passion for science, and wonderful eye for the natural world, the psychologically astute and moving stories gathered in this collection evoke the ways women’s lives and expectations—in families, in work, and in love—have shifted across a century and more. Building upon one another, these tales brilliantly culminate to reveal how the smallest events of the past can have large reverberations across the generations, and how potent, wondrous, and strange the relationship between history and memory can be.”
