Join us on the third Monday of the month for compelling discussions about various nonfiction topics. July's book discussion will be on The Mushroom Hunters: On the Trail of an Underground America
by Langdon Cook. Copies of the book will be available at the Adult Information Desk about four weeks in advance while supplies last.
Book synopsis: While wild mushrooms are being showcased by chefs in elegant restaurants, the mushroom hunters are part of a rough, shadowy subculture that resembles the same drive and frontier-like atmosphere of the Gold Rush. Cook embeds himself amongst these mushroom hunters and buyers to uncover the true adventure, intrigue, and danger behind the world of wild fungi collection.
