Fall Reading Series with Linda Ohlson Graham

November 17, 2020 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 2:30 pm on Tuesday, repeating until December 16, 2020

Join a weekly virtual book club and read along/read aloud with group leader, Linda Ohlson Graham.  Each session will focus on Common Ground: A Naturalist’s Cape Cod by local author Robert Finch.  Linda Ohlson Graham, will read aloud from the book while encouraging other participants to read along or aloud as well. 

Common Ground: A Naturalist’s Cape Cod is about beginnings, or landfalls, in a place by the sea that has been explored, settled, visited, studied, and written about more than almost any other stretch of the North American coastline. The focus of these essays is a personal response to the changing face of this curved peninsula, keeping in touch with the place where one lives.

When Common Ground was first published, Annie Dillard praised Robert Finch’s essays for “their strength, subtlety, and above all their geniality.” New readers will have a chance to discover that Finch’s Cape Cod is indeed a wonderful place. The birds, fish, and animals that share the Cape’s fragile ecology on any given summer day with the human residents are described with the fresh eye of a first-rate nature writer.
