Event Location: 
Fireside Lounge - Martin Luther Chapel

Join with others for our monthly book discussion from 7-8:30 pm in the Fireside Lounge at Martin Luther Chapel.  The book selection for this month is Remarkable Creatures by Tracy Chevalier. Extra copies of the book are available in the Chapel office so please stop in and sign out a copy.


Remarkable Creatures is the story of Mary Anning, who has a talent for finding fossils, and whose discovery of ancient marine reptiles shakes the scientific community and leads to new ways of thinking about the world. Mary's friendship with fellow fossil enthusiast Elizabeth Philpot sees them both through struggles with poverty, rivalry and ostracism, as well as the physical dangers of their chosen obsession. It reminds us that friendship can outlast storms and landslides, anger and and jealousy.
