Books for Lunch Prepares for Author Visit!

Seven Hills parent Teresa Weirich shared her review of Books for Lunch author Sy Montgomery’s book, “Spell of the Tiger: The Man Eaters of Sundarbans.” Here’s what she had to say:

Sy Montgomery takes us to Sundarbans, the largest tidal delta in the world and home to the famous maneating tigers! I found the book interesting, especially since I had the pleasure of living in this part of the world. The book is a collection of stories shared with Sy by community members and government officials she met on journey through Sundarbans. She shares stories about how honey gatherers, fisherman, and wood collectors are taken without any notice, with no sound, and with no sight of the Sundarbans Tigers. Montgomery further delves into the religion and philosophy of the region. This book paints a wonderful picture of the future of tigers worldwide and the scientists studying them.
