Earth-Friendly Book Club Discussion – February 2018

February 6, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

In February, the Earth-Friendly Book Club will read Locust: The Devastating Rise and Mysterious Disappearance of the Insect That Shaped the American Frontier, by Jeffrey A. Lockwood.  From Amazon: “Throughout the nineteenth century, swarms of locusts regularly swept across the American continent, turning noon into dusk, devastating farm communities, and bringing trains to a halt. The outbreaks subsided in the 1890s, and then, suddenly—and mysteriously—the Rocky Mountain locust vanished. A century later, entomologist Jeffrey Lockwood vowed to discover why….  A compelling personal narrative drawing on historical accounts and modern science, this beautifully written book brings to life the cultural, economic, and political forces at work in America in the late nineteenth century, even as it solves one of the greatest extinction mysteries of our time.”

Most monthly meetings are held the 1st Tuesday of each month at 7:00 pm at the Book Haven. If you are interested in joining, and are a GARNA member, please email Marilyn Moore.
