CCR Book Club - May 21, 2020

The book club event has now been rescheduled as an online meeting.
The group will use a Zoom meeting to discuss "Where the Crawdads Sing" by Delia Owen, a book about a young girl who is isolated in the wilderness and wrestling with loneliness. The New York Times defines it as “a combination of murder mystery, lush nature writing, romance and a coming-of-age survival story,”  The Guardian states: “The main storyline spans 1952 to 1970, following Kya Clark between the ages of six and 25 as she grows up alone in a shack in the swamplands of North Carolina after being abandoned by her family. She learns from the wildlife around her, gaining tricks of camouflage to evade truant officers and acquiring hunting skills to feed herself and catch mussels and fish to sell to shopkeepers in the town beyond the creek.” This is a debut novel for Ms. Owen, a 70-year-old retired wildlife biologist who spent decades studying hyenas, lions and elephants in Botswana and Zambia.

When: Wednesday, May 21, 2020
Time: 7:30 p.m. (Rome time)
Where: Remotely from your own home.
RSVP: ATTN Evelyn Joan Beller in order to receive the Zoom meeting invitation.
