Cod, Who Knew?

January 13, 2010 // Filed under Uncategorized

A fish that shaped world history is the subject of a fascinating book to be discussed by the library’s book group, Memoirs and Coffee. The group will discuss Mark Kurlansky’s Cod: A Biography of the Fish That Changed the World on Tuesday, January 26th, at 10:30 a.m. in the Community Room of Bernardsville Public Library. The book recounts the role this once prolific fish played in driving world exploration, national economies, wars, and culinary science. Kurlansky also describes the life cycle of cod and how it has been jeopardized by overfishing. Copies of the book are available at the circulation desk for those who wish to attend the meeting, which is open to the public.
