The series brings together books and video featuring authors, scientists and everyday people who thrive on exploring the natural world– for scholar-led discussions at the library.
SCIENCE PARTNER DISCUSSION: Non traditional food sources.
This is part one of a series of four upcoming book discussions we are hosting. One might consider them book club meets science cafe. We will offer light refreshments and the first 10 participants to register will receive a Land of the Painted Caves book and t-shirt!
