The Norman Public Library's 3rd Saturday Book Discussion Group meets each month on the third Saturday at 10 a.m. in the Norman Library A/B conference room.
At their August meeting, the 3rd Saturday Book Group will be buzzing about this month's read The Bees by Laline Paull.
Flora 717 is a sanitation worker, a member of the lowest caste in her orchard hive. With circumstances threatening the hive's survival, her curiosity is regarded as dangerous, but her courage and strength an asset. She is allowed to feed the newborns in the royal nursery and then to become a forager, flying alone and free to collect pollen. She also finds her way into the Queen's inner sanctum, where she discovers mysteries about the hive that are both profound and ominous.
Copies of The Bees can be obtained from the Norman Library Information Services desk, or you can download the e-book or e-audio from the Pioneer Library System homepage.
