Bookworms (A Bookclub for Adults): Skinned, Stuffed and Stretched
Still Life: Adventures in Taxidermy by Melissa Milgrom
Tuesday, October 19th at 6:30 pm
The word “taxidermy” often conjures up images of hunting lodges, dusty dioramas or a beloved Fido, immortalized forever. Milgrom, however, delves into the unusual and sometimes obsessive world of taxidermy, from its Victorian roots with connections to natural history museums, to bizarre art-forms and the World Taxidermy Championship. Join us for a lively discussion of a book that just might change your thinking about stuffed animals. This is a book discussion group and participants are strongly encouraged to read the book before attending. Please meet at the Business Reception Desk off Middle Drive.
Reservations: Free. To reserve a place, do it online or call 800-794-7576. Meet at the Business Reception Desk off the Middle Drive entrance.
