Not Just for Young Adults Book Discussion

Posted by switham on

Monument 14

Book Discussion Group for Adults who enjoy reading Young Adult Literature.
This month we are reading Monument 14 by Emmy Laybourne.
Stop by the Library to sign up and pick up a copy of the book.

Six high school kids (some popular, some not), two eighth graders (one a tech genius), and six little kids trapped together in a chain superstore build a refuge for themselves inside. While outside, a series of escalating disasters, beginning with a monster hailstorm and ending with a chemical weapons spill, seems to be tearing the world – as they know it – apart.

This one-night event for birders, bird photographers and nature lovers will provide participants with photographic techniques for capturing birds.  The program will be illustrated by Peter Christoph’s masterful photography and seasoned with lively anecdotes, this narrated slideshow will bring you both instruction and inspiration.

Peter will have available the companion book Birds, which he published to accompany his presentation.   There will be a book signing immediately after his talk.

-“Fantastic, a delightful evening of wonderful photography of New England birds.” -June Reams, program attendee.

 

Peter Christoph is one of New England’s best known wildlife photographers, having presented for Mass Audubon, the national wildlife refuge system, and numerous libraries, camera clubs and schools. His passion for capturing birds in their natural habitat, his technical excellence, and his environmental responsibility are revealed in his compelling images. He is set apart as one of the very few photographers willing to share both his photographic knowledge and his favorite locations with other photographers. His images have appeared in many books and magazines and he has authored two bird books, which are available at Mass Audubon’s Wachusett Meadows Wildlife Sanctuary and online at www.peterchristoph.com
