Down to Earth Book Club to meet Nov. 5


DARKE COUNTY – The Darke County Park District reminded the public about the Down to Earth Book Club’s autumn selection.

Each quarter the program will feature a different book, some by well-known nature writers, some about outdoor adventure and even some about pioneers settling Ohio. Everyone is invited to read the book and join the book club at the Shawnee Prairie Preserve Nature Center to discuss the work, enjoy some treats and suggest future books.

This season, the Down to Earth Book Club is reading “Gene Everlasting: A Contrary Farmer’s Thoughts on Living Forever” by Gene Logsdon. Containing the author’s thoughts on nature, death and eternity, he recounts his life on an Ohio farm.

This season’s book club will meet at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 5 at the Shawnee Prairie Preserve Nature Center.

Guests are asked to call ahead to let the book club know they plan on participating in the upcoming book club discussion. The Darke County Parks Nature Center can be reached at 937-548-0165.
