The Fitzgerald-Ben Hill County Library continues our "book club meets science cafĂ©" series with our third program, "Pushing the Limits of Survival" on Monday, November 13, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. at the Library.  With the help of Dr. Bonnie Kelly, the Executive Director of Institutional Research and Planning at Wiregrass, we will be discussing Clive Cussler's book, "Arctic Drift" and diving into such questions as:
  • What are we willing to do in a life and death situation?
  • What would we do to save our way of life, or that of our family's?
  • What drives us to compete in sport, and survive as the winner?
Free copies of "Arctic Drift" by Clive Cussler are available at the Library. Reading the book is not required to participate - all are welcome to join us for this program and participate in discussing this fascinating topic!
Refreshments will be provided by the Friends of the Fitzgerald-Ben Hill County Library. There is no charge to attend.
"Pushing the Limits" is a reading, viewing and discussion program for adults in communities served by rural libraries, made possible by a grant from the National Science Foundation.
Please visit our website at or call the Library at 229-426-5080 for more information.
