  • November 14th, 2019 (adjusted to second Thursday this month): Flight Behavior by Barbara Kingsolver


About Your Facilitator: Kristina Skepton is a Baltimore City native who grew up playing in the street, literally, and did not know a maple from an oak. Her family summer vacations in Chincoteague Virginia, home of the Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge, opened her eyes to the wonder and beauty of the natural world.  Despite her “city girl” upbringing, Kristina snagged the job as “Weekend Naturalist” at Oregon Ridge Nature Center in Baltimore County where she led nature hikes and workshops while in college.  She still describes herself as a “city girl” but she looks forward to once again engaging with environmentally-conscious folks through this book club.

If you are interested in participating in this book club please reserve your space using the RSVP link below. We look forward to seeing you there!
