Event Details

REGISTRATION REQUIRED. Join us for an outdoor book club that focuses on our natural world. We discuss our all-time favorite nature titles, both fiction and non-fiction. The book club meets at parks throughout St. Johns County, practically in your own backyard! This month we will be meeting in Canopy Shores Park.

This month we’ll be reading about humorous encounters a man has while on the Appalachian Trail. Returning to United States after 20 years in England, Bill Bryson decided to reacquaint himself with his mother country by walking the 2,100-mile Appalachian Trail. Known affectionately as the AT, it offers an astonishing landscape of silent forests and sparkling lakes. But for Bryson it also offered an opportunity for humor and irony as he learned the trail’s hard lessons about self-reliance. He persuaded his friend Stephen Katz to join him, and through weeks and months on the trail these two pioneers get in touch with a lot more than just life on the trail. This title is available on the Hoopla platform as an e-audiobook. Please contact Amy directly if you’d prefer a print copy of the book.

This event is free and open to the public, but registration is required. If the weather is sunny, please bring your own camp chair for sitting out under the trees. If it’s rainy, we’ll be sitting in the park pavilion. Feel free to bring your own snacks & beverages! Please notify us at least 3 days in advance if you should need a sign language interpreter. If you have questions please contact Amy at aackerman@sjcfl.us or 904.827.6934.

This book club is a partnership between the St. Johns County Public Library System and the St. Johns County Parks & Recreation Department.  Some materials are supplied by the Friends of the Main Library St. Augustine.
