The St. Peter’s Book Club will discuss science writer Robert M. Sapolsky’s A Primate’s Memoir at its meeting at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, September 24, in the Chapter Room.
An exhilarating account of Sapolsky’s 21-year study of a troupe of rambunctious baboons in Kenya, A Primate’s Memoir interweaves serious scientific observations with wry commentary about the challenges and pleasures of living in the wilds of the Serengeti — for man and beast alike. Over two decades, Sapolsky survives culinary atrocities, gunpoint encounters, and a surreal kidnapping, while witnessing the encroachment of the tourist mentality on the farthest vestiges of unspoiled Africa.
Also at this meeting the group will choose the books for discussion in the months ahead. All welcome, whether you’ve read the book or not. The lively discussion may encourage you to do so! Roberta Poellein (firstname.lastname@example.org) is happy to provide details.
