Keeping It Classy Book Club Meeting

Description: The Whiton Branch Library on 100 N Main Street will have its July meeting of Keeping It Classy Book Club on Thursday July 6, 2017 at 6:30 p.m. This month’s selection is Jaws by Peter Benchley.

When Peter Benchley wrote Jaws in the early 1970s, he meticulously researched all available data about shark behavior. Over the ensuing decades, Benchley was actively engaged with scientists and filmmakers on expeditions around the world as they expanded their knowledge of sharks. Also during this time, there was an unprecedented upswing in the number of sharks killed to make shark-fin soup, and Benchley worked with governments and nonprofits to sound the alarm for shark conservation. He encouraged each new generation of Jaws fans to enjoy his riveting tale and to channel their excitement into support and protection of these magnificent, prehistoric apex predators.
