Virtual Book Club Brings Nature Lovers Together

There's no need to hop in the car to attend the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's new nature-themed book club, America's Wild Read. The online-only group lets bibliophiles around the world participate, and the virtual club's first book is acclaimed biologist E. O. Wilson's novel Anthill. For readers who don't want to commit to an entire tome, the discussion will also include two essays: "Thinking Like a Mountain" by Aldo Leopold and "Once and Future Land Ethic" by Curt Meine. Discussions begin online on May 1, and the virtural book chat starts May 15.
