Remarkable Creatures By Tracy Chevalier

Cover of "Remarkable Creatures"

Monday, July 11 through Friday, August 5, 2022. Read by Michele Good.

Based on the true story of two extraordinary, 19th century fossil hunters who changed the scientific world forever, poor and uneducated Mary Anning learns she has “the eye” to spot fossils no one else can see. She soon finds an unlikely champion in prickly Elizabeth Philpot, a middle-class spinster who shares her passion for scouring the beaches. When Mary uncovers an unusual, fossilized skeleton in the cliffs near her home, she sets the religious community on edge, the townspeople to gossip, and the scientific world alight.
