Reading Group: Of Time and Turtles: Mending the World, Shell by Shattered Shell

Of Time and Turtles immerses readers in the delicate work, observed by Montgomery and Patterson, of protecting and rescuing sea turtles. It is a hopeful, optimistic blend of science, memoir, and philosophy that draws on cultures from around the world to create a compassionate portrait of turtles, the rescuers that work tirelessly for their welfare, and the future of their homes in the wild. Participants are encouraged to read the selected book prior to the discussion. Books are not supplied but are available at Schumacher Library, partner libraries, and the Madison Public Library system. How much does this event cost? It's free! Instructors: Eva Stefanski, Horticultural Librarian at Olbrich Botanical Gardens; Marian Farrior, Restoration Work Party Manager at UW Arboretum; Karen Dunn, Librarian at Steenbock Library
