Nonfiction Book Club

August 28, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

This month, as part of the Natick Community Read, we’ll be discussing How to Be a Good Creature: A Memoir in Thirteen Animals by Sy Montgomery.  In this memoir, Montgomery draws on her experience as a naturalist and adventurer to reflect on the unique personalities of 13 specific animals and the truths revealed by their grace. She explores much larger themes as well: the otherness and sameness of people and animals; the various ways we learn to love and become empathetic; how we find our passion; how we create our families; coping with loss and despair; gratitude; forgiveness; and most of all, how to be a good creature in the world.

Copies of the book are available at the library for curbside pickup. 

This discussion will be held over Zoom meeting. Please register to receive the meeting details.
