Abbott Marshlands Nature Book Club

July 30, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:15 pm

The Abbott Marshlands Nature Book Club will meet again on Thursday, July 30th at 7 PM via Zoom.

This month we will be discussing  “Upland and Meadow.  A Poaetquissings Chronicle” by Charles Conrad Abbott.

Wander into the mind of Charles Abbott as he chronicles his contemplative rambles in the local area.  If you haven’t read any of Abbott’s Naturalist writings before, I think you’ll find it a surprising treat.  An 1886 book review in The Academy called it “the most delightful book of its kind which America has given to us”.
Online versions of the book are available for free and if you prefer to read on paper, reprints are readily available online. Here is a link to some free online versions.     https://catalog.hathitrust.org/Record/001490260
If you are not already on our bookclub email list and you would like to participate, please send an email to bookclub@abbottmarshlands.org and we’ll be sure to send you meeting login details as it approaches.
