[ARCHIVED] Learn About Science Through Informal Discussions at Show Low Library

National Science Foundation funds “Pushing the Limits” program

SHOW LOW, Ariz. (January 31, 2017) – Join other like-minded adults and learn more about science topics through an informal discussion of the book, “When the Killing’s Done” by T.C. Boyle, on Thursday, Feb. 23, at 6:15 p.m. at Show Low Public Library, 181 N. 9th Street. “When the Killing’s Done” is a 2011 novel set in the Channel Islands of California that pits the convictions of a National Park Service biologist against those of an environmentalist. The discussion will be moderated by special guest Dan Groebner of the Arizona Game and Fish Department. The library has several copies of the book for participants to check out and read prior to this free event.

The novel is part of the Pushing the Limits program, a reading, viewing and discussion program geared for rural libraries that uses popular fiction to introduce adults to broad scientific themes, made possible by a grant from the National Science Foundation. Along with an informal discussion, videos about the book’s themes will be shown and light refreshments will be provided.

For more information, call (928) 532-4070, go to www.showlowaz.gov/library or send an email to library@showlowaz.gov.
