Program:  Book Talk – Science

For the last 35 years, one of our general meetings has been a ‘book talk’.  Skagit Valley College Librarian, Linda Hendrick, leads this unique and popular event.  Each year a different topic is selected by Linda and members are asked to read a book on that topic.  At the meeting, Linda provides a hand-out with information on the topic, including a bibliography, and each hand-out has a different quote on the topic. Members are asked to read their quote before talking about their book. Topics in the past have included: family, gardening, autobiographies, mysteries, humor and cookbooks.
