Estes Valley readers have chosen Barbara Kingsolver’s acclaimed novel Flight Behavior as the next One Book One Valley. Stop in for a copy, then watch for programs and discussions this January.
All the community is encouraged to take part in this annual opportunity to spotlight literacy, storytelling and dialogue through the shared reading of a single book.
Flight Behavior tells the story of Dellarobia Turnbow, a restless housewife in Feathertown, Tennessee, who uses the appearance of monarch butterflies on the mountain on her family’s property to take control of and become more contented with her life.
The New York Times wrote: “Marvelous….This is fiction rich in empathy, wit and science. Like the butterflies that astonish Feathertown, Kingsolvian gifts are ‘fierce and wondrous,’ ‘colors moving around like fire.’”
Among the special programs coming this January are book discussions, a wildscaping and Master Gardener program, a visit to the Butterfly Pavilion, and movies at Reel Mountain Theater. The full roster will be available in the Winter Programs & Services Guide arriving in December.
One Book One Valley is made possible by the generous support of the Estes Valley Library Friends & Foundation.
