The Voyage of the Beagle
In celebration of Charles Darwin's 200th birthday, the Academy's adult book group will meet to discuss the naturalist's 1839 work, which he wrote during the course of his five-year worldwide journey aboard the H.M.S. Beagle. The book, also known as Journal of Researches, is a minutely detailed treatise covering biology, geology, and anthropology. The group will focus on chapters 1-4, 8-9, and 17.
