Let's Talk About It: "Mirror of Maine" Book Talk Series

“The Mirror of Maine” opens new doors to Maine’s literature and her extraordinary history and culture for Maine readers. These books that reveal aspects of life in our state can bring deeper knowledge and appreciation for what makes Maine a special place and for authors who express those ideas. Since most of these books are based on actual towns, readers can consider what is real and what is myth about Maine towns, their patterns of daily life, and the values held by the residents. King’s story, with evil masked as the commonplace, provides a foil for the discussions. Books will be provided by the library. New participants are welcome at any point during the series.

The book discussions will be:
Tuesday, November 12th at 6pm - ‘Salem’s Lot by Stephen King
Tuesday, January 21 at 6pm - The Weir by Ruth Moore
Date to be announced in February  - Empire Falls by Richard Russo
