Ferndale Library Book Group

Wednesday, February 20 @ 2:30pm to 4:00pm

Free

Join us as we discuss the WhatcomREADS 2019 title, “The Big Burn: Teddy Roosevelt & The Fire That Saved America” by Timothy Egan. The story of the nation’s biggest wildfire – an apocalyptic blaze that burned an area the size of Connecticut in a weekend. No living person had ever seen a fire with the ferocity, speed, and destructive power of the Big Burn of 1910. Equally dramatic is the larger story of Teddy Roosevelt and Gifford Pinchot, and the creation myth of the U.S. Forest Service. All are welcome! The Ferndale Book Group meetings on the third Wednesday.
