Love to Read? Love to Talk? Then join the Library's Greedy Reader Book Club! The club meets the last Tuesday of every month to discuss books chosen by the members. All faculty, students and staff are invited to attend.
The meetings are held the last Tuesday of the month (except December) at 2:00 pm in the Library Conference Room (Y-102).
The book for November is Lab Girl by Hope Jahren. The next meeting is November 28 at 2pm.
From the Publisher:
Geobiologist Hope Jahren has spent her life studying trees, flowers, seeds, and soil. Lab Girl is her revelatory treatise on plant life—but it is also a celebration of the lifelong curiosity, humility, and passion that drive every scientist. In these pages, Hope takes us back to her Minnesota childhood, where she spent hours in unfettered play in her father’s college laboratory. She tells us how she found a sanctuary in science, learning to perform lab work “with both the heart and the hands.” She introduces us to Bill, her brilliant, eccentric lab manager. And she extends the mantle of scientist to each one of her readers, inviting us to join her in observing and protecting our environment. Warm, luminous, compulsively readable, Lab Girl vividly demonstrates the mountains that we can move when love and work come together.
