Barbara Hurd NOVEMBER 2011 AUTHOR

In November 2011 author Barbara Hurd leads our group on a virtual tour of Entering the Stone, her collection of essays on caves and confronting the unknown. Here is the authors official website:

The Diane Rehm Show on Entering the Stone:

“In this profound and beautifully written exploration of caves and caving, Barbara Hurd describes not only her initiation into the stony earth but also the full range of human depths. Geology and spiritual discovery in this book are one, the evolution of Hurd’s knowledge of stalactites and sightless cave fish inseparable from her encounter with fear and mystery, invisibility and intimacy, Eros and grief, life and death. Entering the Stone is a masterpiece of the interior world.”--Jane Hirshfield

We meet to discuss our experience of Hurd's work on December 3. If you wish to join us, please email for directions.
