Immense World Book Discussion Group for the Season of Creation
Thursday, September 1, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - Thursday, October 6, 2022 @ 6:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 5:00 pm on Thursday, repeating until Thursday, October 6, 2022
Calling environmentalists, animal lovers, Christians observing the Season of Creation, and people of all faith/spiritual traditions to learn about the amazing sensory abilities of animals in a weekly book discussion group using the bestseller Immense World: How Animals Senses Reveal the Hidden Realms Around Us. In the last decade, research on other animals’ ways of perceiving and making sense of the world — also known as “umwelt” — has exploded. With An Immense World, Ed Yong, a science journalist at the Atlantic, pulls together these findings to give us a scientifically based glimpse into how animals experience the world. You’ll never consider animals quite the same way again! Schedule for the weekly online discussion is given below. Register for this event on www.eventbrite.com.
