First Thursday Book Discussion: Fox and I

Fox and IFox and I: An Uncommon Friendship” is a memoir about the friendship between a solitary woman and a fox, for readers of Wild and H Is for Hawk. More comfortable in nature than among people, Catherine Raven worked as a National Park ranger, eventually earning a PhD in biology. She built a house on an isolated plot of land in Montana, teaching remotely and leading field classes. One day, she realized that the mangy-looking fox who had been appearing on her property was now showing up every day at 4:15 p.m. One day she brought out her camping chair, sat as close to him as she dared, and began reading to him from The Little Prince. “Fox and I” is a poignant and dramatic tale of friendship, transformation, and coping with inevitable loss — and of how that loss can become meaning. It is also the introduction of an original, imaginative, stunning literary voice. This discussion is geared for adults.  Please register for a Zoom link.
