Book Club Meeting & Social
Tuesday, Sep 12, 2023
7:30pm – 9:30pm
Join the WWO Book Club & Social! Offered virtually so all can join, we gather quarterly to socialize and discuss a book around the theme of women in the outdoors.
September’s book is Bicycling with Butterflies: My 10,201-Mile Journey Following the Monarch Migration by Sara Dykman, winner of the 2021 National Outdoor Book Award.
“Sara Dykman made history when she became the first person to bicycle alongside monarch butterflies on their storied annual migration—a round-trip adventure that included three countries and more than 10,000 miles. Equally remarkable, she did it solo, on a bike cobbled together from used parts. Her panniers were recycled buckets.
In Bicycling with Butterflies, Dykman recounts her incredible journey and the dramatic ups and downs of the nearly nine-month odyssey. We’re beside her as she navigates unmapped roads in foreign countries, checks roadside milkweed for monarch eggs, and shares her passion with eager schoolchildren, skeptical bar patrons, and unimpressed border officials. We also meet some of the ardent monarch stewards who supported her efforts, from citizen scientists and researchers to farmers and high-rise city dwellers.”
Come join a community of women who share the outdoors in all ways possible!
