The Home Place: A One Night Book Club

March 25, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join fellow nature enthusiasts in a guided discussion of The Home Place: Memoirs of a Colored Man’s Love Affair with Nature by award winning author and wildlife ecologist J. Drew Lanham. This one night only book club meets – you guessed it – just once. For the best experience, read the whole book, but feel free to join us even if you can only read a little bit. Copies of the book are available for order directly from the publisher here or at independent bookstores here.
Advance registration required / FREE / Donations always appreciated
