Thanks to all who came on Sunday to discuss “Where the Song Began” by Tim Low. Despite the library having only one copy, a surprising number of us managed to read it (unfortunately, not me!) A good and useful discussion about birds in Australia, including problems faced by various bird species as well as positive stories, and the fascinating theory that birds began in Australia and not the Northern hemisphere as previously thought.
We discussed our book list and agreed to nominate books only for the remainder of the year, and also agreed that the proposer for each book should be responsible for giving a brief introduction and comment at the meeting before the general discussion. As we have our final meeting in November to review the books for the year, this is now four books. There are a few copies of each in the library, please place holds now.
“Any Ordinary Day” by Leigh Sales – for JULY (Rod)
“21 Lessons for the 21st Century” by Yuval Noah Harari – for AUGUST (Helen)
“Utopia for Realists” by Rutger Bregman – for SEPTEMBER (Rod)
“Rusted Off” by Gabrielle Chan – for OCTOBER (? Maybe Robert)
Please think about future reads and check the library catalogue. The library stocks most non fiction books 4 copies at a time, so we should be able to source a reading list this way.
See you next time!
