Seashells have been the most coveted and collected of nature’s creations since the dawn of humanity. They were money before coins, jewelry before gems, art before canvas. In “The Sound of the Sea,” acclaimed environmental author Cynthia Barnett blends cultural history and science to trace our long love affair with seashells and the secret lives of the mollusks that make them. Inace Massari leads this month’s virtual book group. Free with registration, the History Center’s book group meets via Google Meet from 10:30-11:30 a.m. on the third Thursday of each month.
