Join us to discuss books that open a window to the great outdoors! 

It’s free with admission and open to anyone who read the book, but please register in advance for the session you will be attending. Please leave small children at home, but older ones with interest in the topic may attend, especially if they’ve read the book with you. Didn’t quite finish the book? As long as you don’t mind spoilers, come anyways and discuss the bits you got to. 

Want more book club goodness? Check out our Arboretum Book Club for more books and more discussion!

Limited copies are available in our libraries at the Garden and Arboretum, but if we are out, please consider supporting your local public library by checking out their ebook, audiobook, or physical copies!
