As the Worm Turns

The As the Worm Turns Book Group will discuss The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating by Elisabeth Tova Bailey (Algonquin, $14.95). While an illness keeps her bedridden, Bailey watches a wild snail that has taken up residence on her nightstand. As a result, she discovers the solace and sense of wonder that this mysterious creature brings and comes to a greater understanding of her own confined place in the world. Intrigued by the snail's anatomy, cryptic defenses, clear decision making, hydraulic locomotion, and mysterious courtship activities, Bailey becomes an astute and amused observer, providing an engaging look into the curious life of this small animal. Janet Grojean will lead the discussion.
