Learn about the different hummingbirds and how they serve as important pollinators in Middle Tennessee. Often we think about hummingbirds as summer visitors that prefer red flowering plants; however, you can learn to make your landscape an attractive stop during their long migration period, and ensure hummers all year long.

Our April book is A Separate Country by Robert Hicks.  Set in New Orleans in the years after the Civil War, John Bell Hood, arguably one of the most controversial generals of the Confederate Army--and one of its most tragic figures--struggles with his inability to admit his failures until those who taught him to love, and to be loved, transformed him.

Our May book is A Man Called Ove by Fredrick Backman.  Ove is a curmudgeon who is trying to kill himself, but the neighbors keep getting in the way. We learn about Ove's life gradually and as the neighbors become slightly less annoying for Ove.  He may yet turn out to have a caring bone in his body.
