SLT Reads - July - Flight Behavior

Jul 2021 8

5:30 PM to 7:00 PM

Thank you to everyone who has joined us at a previous SLT Reads book club discussion! Our next book discussion will be held on Thursday, July 8th from 5:30-7:00 on Zoom. We will be reading Flight Behavior by: Barbara Kingsolver. 

"Dellarobia hikes up a mountain road behind her house to a secret tryst, she encounters a shocking sight: a silent, forested valley filled with what looks like a lake of fire. She can only understand it as a cautionary miracle, but it sparks a raft of other explanations from scientists, religious leaders, and the media. The bewildering emergency draws rural farmers into unexpected acquaintance with urbane journalists, opportunists, sightseers, and a striking biologist with his own stake in the outcome. As the community lines up to judge the woman and her miracle, Dellarobia confronts her family, her church, her town, and a larger world, in a flight toward truth that could undo all she has ever believed.

Flight Behavior takes on one of the most contentious subjects of our time: climate change. With a deft and versatile empathy Kingsolver dissects the motives that drive denial and belief in a precarious world."
