The Adult Book Club invites guests to come to its meeting Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. The book this month was chosen by member, Sandra Moore and is written by one of her favorite authors, Tracy Chevalier.
“‘Remarkable Creatures’ is about the life of pioneer paleontologist Mary Anning,” Moore said. “I am attracted to her other books where she centers a fictional story around a real life event or object. Several of my book reading friends highly recommend this book.”
