PLG Nonfiction Book Group discusses H Is for Hawk
Led by PLG store manager Geo, our nonfiction book group in Prospect Lefferts Gardens reads and discusses the most fascinating topics in nonfiction, both classic and contemporary, with seasonal themes covering a variety of genres. For October, the group discusses Helen Macdonald’s instant New York Times bestseller and award-winning sensation, H Is for Hawk. Macdonald’s story of adopting and raising one of nature’s most vicious predators has soared into the hearts of millions of readers worldwide. Fierce and feral, her goshawk Mabel’s temperament mirrors Helen’s own state of grief after her father’s death, and together raptor and human “discover the pain and beauty of being alive” (People). H Is for Hawk is a genre-defying debut from one of our most unique and transcendent voices.
