Mary Ann Kulla, Chair, 203-792-3426,

Meets Bi-Monthly on the Second Thursday, 7:00 p.m.

On Thursday, March 14 at 7:00 in the Cottage the Book Conversation group will be meeting to discuss  Being a Dog  by Alexandra Horowitz.  If you have a dog, or enjoy the company of dogs, this book will help you understand a big part of dog behavior – their sense of smell and the knowledge and pleasure it brings them.  It will encourage you to get in touch with your own sense of smell.  The book explains how dogs are trained to track infinitesimally small amounts of scent so they can detect drugs, find explosives and hunt people.  It also questions why humans have learned to ignore smell or  try to remove or cover-up scents.
On Thursday, May 9 at 7:00 our book will be  Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World  by Jack Weatherford.  Hero? Villain? Genius? Butcher? Join us and decide.
