OTSP Book Discussion with the Rural Hall Library's Book Club- Tue., Oct. 4th @ 7pm
The Rural Hall Book Club will host a discussion of Barbara Kingsolver's Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, this year's On the Same Page community read selection. Tuesday, October 4, at 7pm. No registration is necessary. Refreshments are generously provided by the Produce Box.
When bestselling author Barbara Kingsolver, her husband Steven, and their daughters Camille and Lily moved from the literal food desert of Tucson, Arizona to lush farmland in Virginia, they made a pledge: For one year, they wouldn't eat anything they couldn't either grow themselves or purchase from a local grower. Animal, Vegetable, Miracle is the story of that year. Follow Kingsolver and her family as they stalk the "vegetannual," raise their own chickens, make creative use of a bumper zucchini crop, and learn the ins and outs of turkey breeding. The book is equal parts funny, informative, and heart-warming, and we're thrilled to feature it for On the Same Page.
Join us for a series of programs building off of the themes of farming and good nutrition. Rural Hall will also host a Q&A about community gardens on Saturday, October 8th at 10:30am. On the Same Page culminates in a FREE event at the Reynolda House Museum of American Art on Saturday, October 15, at 2:00pm. Guest speaker R. Tripp Evans presents an exploration of the factors that made Grant Wood tick and that underlie much of his work. The Grant Wood exhibit will be on display and refreshments will be provided by Willow's Bistro.
