Book of the Month, Nov. 2020 - Lab Girl

November 2020 – Lab Girl

As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? Chances are, whatever it was sparked your curiosity. AgBookClub’s November selection, Lab Girl by Hope Jahren, is a love letter to science, celebrating the passion, humility and curiosity that drive people to pay deep attention to their world.

At AgBookClub, we’re hoping this memoir of a life spent studying trees, flowers, seeds, and soil gives us a renewed appreciation for the biology that quite literally feeds us.
