Want a change of pace? How about reading the book REMARKABLY BRIGHT CREATURES by Shelby Van Pelt where one of the narrators is a very intelligent octopus? Yes, octopus. This octopus will cause you to analyze how some of the things we humans do might look to an outsider. The novel about a lonely 70-year-old cleaning lady who befriends an octopus in the aquarium where she works is a charming, warmhearted read. Both Aldersgate book clubs will be discussing it. Wednesday, August 2, 1:30 pm on zoom and Tuesday, August 15 at 7 pm at Aldersgate.
