Join your fellow bibliophiles for our monthly Where the Wild Books Are book club meeting! Meetings are held via Zoom.
October’s book is The Soul of an Octopus: A Surprising Exploration into the Wonder of Consciousness, by Sy Montgomery.
“In pursuit of the wild, solitary, predatory octopus, popular naturalist Sy Montgomery has practiced true immersion journalism. From New England aquarium tanks to the reefs of French Polynesia and the Gulf of Mexico, she has befriended octopuses with strikingly different personalities—gentle Athena, assertive Octavia, curious Kali, and joyful Karma. Each creature shows her cleverness in myriad ways: escaping enclosures like an orangutan; jetting water to bounce balls; and endlessly tricking companions with multiple “sleights of hand” to get food.”
Books can be purchased for a discount at the Chatham Bookstore.
