…on Tuesday, December 26 at 7pm in the church Welcome Hall. We hope you’ll join us to share your views of this engrossing book.

Here’s what NYT’s reviewer Michiko Kakutani had to say about it: “Vladimir Nabokov once observed that “a writer should have the precision of a poet and the imagination of a scientist.” The geobiologist Hope Jahren possesses both in spades. Her engrossing new memoir, “Lab Girl,” is at once a thrilling account of her discovery of her vocation and a gifted teacher’s road map to the secret lives of plants — a book that, at its best, does for botany what Oliver Sacks’s essays did for neurology, what Stephen Jay Gould’s writings did for paleontology.”
