This meeting will also feature guest speaker, Karrie Korroch. Karrie has hiked the Appalachian Trail and will share some of her experiences from the trail.
February's book is A Nest for Celeste by Henry Cole. Join us for a discussion about Celeste, a mouse longing for a real home. Celeste becomes a source of inspiration to teenaged Joseph, assistant to the artist and naturalist John James Audubon, at a New Orleans plantation in 1821.
