Spring Book Group: Timothy, or, Notes of an Abject Reptile

The precise time of day and the location for this event are yet to be determined. The calendar will be updated in due course.

Verlyn Klinkenborgs novel Timothy, or, Notes of an Abject Reptile, is a delightful reading experience. The Yale Review faculty bookshelf noted the blurb: Few writers have attempted to explore the natural history of a particular animal by adopting the animals own sensibility. But Verlyn Klinkenborg has done just that in Timothy: an insightful and utterly engaging story of the worlds most famous tortoise, whose real life was observed by the eighteenthcentury English curate and naturalist Gilbert White. For thirteen years, Timothy lived in Whites garden. Here Klinkenborg gives the tortoise an unforgettable voice
and keen powers of observation on both human and natural affairs. Wry and wise, unexpectedly moving and enchanting at everycarefulturn, Timothy surprises and delights.

Mary Sanders Shartle leads the discussion. Please call the church office if you would like to attend.
