      EVENT DETAILS
      Untamed Reads Broadlands Wild Book Clubs 2019

      We’ll gather every final Thursday of the month from 5:30-6:30pm at the fireplace (until it is warm enough to start having outdoor firepits and s’mores).

      Readings are for both adults and another set for 3rd-6th grade (pre-teen readers). Then there will be a showcased picture book here in the Nature Center as well for our little friends who come and visit the animals during the day. This year our books all have a bit of magic in them. We figured life is a bit hard and we could all use a little escape. Plus the Nature Center is often described as a haven of magic so we thought we should read books that fit our gathering spot.January: The Magicians: A Novel (Magicians Trilogy)
