Book Club | Annie Dillard’s Pilgrim at Tinker Creek: Pulitzer Prize Winner (virtual)


This nonfiction book group reads and discusses Annie Dillard’s Pulitzer Prize winner Pilgrim at Tinker Creek. Dillard's personal narrative highlights one year's exploration on foot in the Virginia region through which Tinker Creek runs. In the summer, she stalks muskrats in the creek and contemplates wave mechanics; in the fall, she watches a monarch butterfly migration and dreams of Arctic caribou. She tries to con a coot; she collects pond water and examines it under a microscope. She unties a snake skin, witnesses a flood, and plays King of the Meadow with a field of grasshoppers. The result is an exhilarating tale of nature and its seasons.
