The HFN Book Club

The Halifax Field Naturalists Book Club formed in 2012.  The Book Club meetings normally take place on the second Wednesdays of November, March and May. New members are invited to join any time! One book is discussed at each meeting and notice of each choice is sent out in advance. At the May meeting, we start to discuss choices for the following fall.

We have a regularly updated list of HFN Book Club suggestions, which we use as a resource for upcoming reads.

The next meeting will be on Thursday, May 11. Throwim Way Leg is written by Australian zoologist and climate change activist, Tim Flannery. It documents Flannery’s experiences conducting scientific research in the highlands of Papua New Guinea and Indonesian Western New Guinea – it’s an engaging true adventure, based on his Ph.D thesis, Tree Kangaroos of Australia and New Guinea. A short summary is available at Danny Yee’s Book Reviews.
