World of Wonders: Explanation

As I mentioned in my last post on When I’m 64, our book group is reading a book by Aimee Nezhukumatathil called World of Wonders: In Praise of Fireflies, Whale Sharks and Other Astonishments and hearing we were reading it was delightful because I’d sat in on a Zoom meeting between Aimee Nezhukumatathil and Ross Gay (the impetus for When I’m 64) and thought I would probably like World of Wonders. I’ve read one essay/chapter and I know I am going to love it. Not only is the writing delightful, but the book is illustrated beautifully by Fumi Mini Nakamura.
