Book cover of "Of Time and Turtles: Mending the World Shell by Shattered Shell"Join us for this special event with award-winning author Sy Montgomery and wildlife artist Matt Patterson as we celebrate their newest book on publication day. Of Time and Turtles relates the dramas and insights gleaned from working in a hospital for injured, sick, and abandoned turtles and, at the same time, investigates the mystery of time itself. It’s not only a deeply researched, warm, and hopeful text, but also an invitation to slip into turtle time — the sacred, eternal time of daylight, darkness, and seasons — and a story that shows us one way to heal a world beset with unprecedented peril.

7 to 8 p.m. at the Harris Center. Space is limited, and registration is required. For more information, including questions about accessibility, contact Susie Spikol.

Co-sponsored by the Harris Center for Conservation Education, the Hancock Town Library and Toadstool Bookshop.
