White Birch Book is excited for Monday, August 21, when a solar eclipse will cut across the entire United States. And wherever you are, you will be able to see it!
Even though the “totality” — the area where the sun is completely blocked out by the moon — is only 70 miles wide, the whole country (even Alaska and Hawaii) will experience a partial eclipse. The temperature will drop, stars will appear, and birds will become confused and start chirping their night time songs. It’s going to be awesome!
So to get you prepared they suggest you pick up a copy of AMERICAN ECLIPSE by David Baron to read about the eclipse of 1878.
Their Book Groups meet the second & fourth Thursday of the month and are open to any and all readers. Discussions are good, varied and – for the most part – stay on point. But they have a lot of fun, too. Stop in, meet some new friends and read some great books.
