The next meeting of Thetford’s informal nonfiction book discussion group will take place at Latham Library on Thetford Hill on Tuesday January 30th at 7 pm.
We will be discussing Birds, Beasts and Relatives by Gerald Durrell.
This book is the second volume of the Corfu Trilogy, about Durrell’s childhood years on the island of Corfu in the 1930s. He became a renowned animal collector and conservationist and a pioneer of breeding endangered species in captivity, having founded his own zoo on the island of Jersey.
