OLLI Member Reading at Nicola's Books **NEW**
OLLI member John Knott will be reading from his essays written in the OLLI study group, "Memoirs and Personal Essays". His book will also be available for purchase. John Knott will read from his book, "Almost Country: Living with the Land". Almost Country explores the efforts of a couple whose children have left home to establish a new way of living in the semi-rural countryside outside Ann Arbor, Michigan. Essays describe their adventures in building a house responsive to its environment and in becoming stewards of a little over three mainly wooded acres, encouraging native plants and attempting with varying success to hold off invasives. Collectively, they present a story of getting to know a place intimately and learning to deal with challenges from the human and natural worlds, from developers and county officials to windstorms, a hatch of seventeen-year cicadas, flying squirrels in the attic, and a bullfrog that takes up residence for the winter in the basement floor drain.
