“Flight Behavior” Book Discussion at Stillwater Public Library
April 5, 2016
As part of The Big Read in the St. Croix Valley, Stillwater Public Library is hosting a book discussion of Flight Behavior, a novel by Barbara Kingsolver that explores the theme of climate change.
Of Kingsolver, the New York Times writes, “She takes palpable pleasure in the craft of writing, creating images that stay with the reader long after her story is done.” Kingsolver’s riveting story concerns a woman on a failing farm in rural Tennessee who experiences something she cannot explain--the appearance of millions of monarchs. In Flight Behavior, Kingsolver traces the unforeseen impact of global climate change on the ordinary citizens of one rural community.
