Are you interested in exploring the vast mysteries of the cosmos, understanding human evolutionary history, or talking about the long-term future of the planet earth? These topics and more will be discussed in Black Holes, Beakers, and Books, a popular science book club that reads and discusses popular science books published within the last five years. May’s selection is The Hidden Life of Trees by Peter Wohlleben, a veteran German forester. Wohlleben believes trees have memories, talk to each other, and protect one another. He defends this anthropomorphizing of trees against what he considers soulless scientific language.
