Reading Allowed

The Sea Garden by Deborah Lawrenson (HARPER)

Sunday • June 26 • 4pm

Molbak's Garden + Home, 13625 NE 175th St, Woodinville

Gardeners and book lovers, join us the last Sunday of every month to discuss fiction and non-fiction books about gardening at Molbak's Garden + Home in Woodinville.

Romance, suspense, and World War II mystery weave together in these three artfully linked novellas by Deborah Lawrenson. A blind woman finds herself at the center of a Resistance cell in Nazi-occupied Provence. A junior British intelligence officer in wartime London falls for a French agent who suddenly vanishes. And an award-winning British landscape designer is hired to restore a memorial garden haunted by many secrets. The result is a vivid and absorbing chronicle of love and loss in the fog of war—and a penetrating and perceptive examination of the impulses and circumstances that shape our lives.

Are We Smart Enough to Know How Smart Animals Are? by Frans de Waal

Monday • June 27 • 6pm

The book store cafe fireside

Have dogs possibly domesticated themselves to have better hunting with human companions? How much light does Machiavellis Prince shed on the power struggles of chimpanzees? Is language really at the root of thinking?

Frans de Waal, lifetime biologist, is considered one of the 100 Most Influential People in the world by Time Magazine. His new book is a thought-provoking survey of the way human beings view the world of animals, and our growing awareness of the ways animals communicate, plan, plot, think and feel.

Combining lab experiments with field work, he explodes the myths that animals dont have goals and strategies. Let him open up your mind, as he reveals wasps who can recognize the individual faces of other wasps and chimps with toolkits of five different tools.

Join our own resident writer, Nick DiMartino, for a lively discussion of this month's selection. Book club members save 20% when you purchase this title at our University District Store.
