Stamford Community Library will host a free four-part reading, viewing and discussion series for adults called "Pushing the Limits." The series brings together books and video featuring authors, scientists and everyday people who thrive on exploring the natural world.

At the first event on Thursday, April 10, Michael Clough from the Southern Vermont Natural History Museum will lead the discussion based on the book "When the Killing’s Done" by T.C. Boyle and videos of author interviews and human interest stories will be viewed that evening. Finger foods will be served at 6 p.m. followed by the program at 6:30 p.m.

Free books are available but reading it is not a prerequisite to joining in the discussion. All are welcome to attend.

This series is made possible by a grant from the National Science Foundation.
