CBF is excited to co-host the Chesapeake Bay Book Club, in partnership with the Talbot County Free Library! You don't need to be an expert on the Bay or environmental issues to join; you just need a desire to read, learn, and enjoy snacks over a lively discussion.

The club meets on the first Thursday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at the Talbot County Free Library's Easton Branch. The Oct. 4 book club pick is a classic: William Warner's Beautiful Swimmers. This Pulitzer Prize winning book, first published in 1976, explores the ecological importance of the Chesapeake's blue crabs, and takes a closer look at the lives and culture of the watermen who depend on them. This program is free and open to the public.

Please RSVP to Hilary Gibson at

Mark your calendars for the coming months:

November 1: The Nature Fix by Florence Williams
December: An Island Out of Time by Tom Horton
The club will select the 2019 books during the December meeting.
