UUC’s Science Book Group will begin discussing Entangled Life: How Fungi Make Our Worlds, Change Our Minds & Shape Our Futures next week. We will discuss approximately the first half of the book on January 11 and the second half on January 25.

“In Entangled Life, the brilliant young biologist Merlin Sheldrake shows us the world from a fungal point of view, providing an exhilarating change of perspective.

Sheldrake’s vivid exploration takes us from yeast to psychedelics, to the fungi that range for miles underground and are the largest organisms on the planet, to those that link plants together in complex networks known as the “Wood Wide Web,”  to those that infiltrate and manipulate insect bodies with devastating precision.”

Holds are pretty backed up at both the Seattle Public Library and the King County Library System. If you have not yet nabbed the book, post to the group (in UUC Connect) to see if anyone has a copy to loan.
