A Valley News Publication

I guess eight-legged creatures are her thing, because scientist and New Hampshire resident Sy Montgomery — best-selling author of The Soul of the Octopus — will talk about this intelligent and misunderstood creature at the Fiske Free Library in Claremont tonight at 6. (That’s according to Valley Calendar and our things-to-do Facebook group.) Valley News staff writer David Corriveau reminds us that Montgomery and Elizabeth Marshall Thomas gave a wonderful reading and talk in Norwich last fall.
