The Tuesday Readers enjoy titles selected by members and meet on the third Tuesday of the month at 10 am. The May 21 selection is High Tide At Noon by Elisabeth Ogilvie. “The struggles, hardship, and joy of one woman’s life on a Maine island are brought to life in this haunting and enduringly popular trilogy, the first [of] three books of the Bennett’s Island series.” ―Goodreads

The Thursday Thoughtful Readers meet on the third Thursday of the month. They will gather May 16 at 3 pm to discuss When We Were the Kennedys, a memoir of a season when a family lost its father and a nation lost its President, by Maine author Monica Wood. “…an extraordinarily moving book…Wood displays all her superb novelistic skills in this breathtaking, evocative new memoir.” ―Filmmaker, Ken Burns.

The New Tuesday Evening Book Group meets on the third Tuesday of each month at 6:30pm. The May 21 selection is The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Frye, by Rachel Joyce. “A gentle and genteel charmer, brimming with British quirkiness yet quietly haunting in its poignant and wise examination of love and devotion.”— Booklist

The book discussion groups meet in the Community Room of the Library, 39 Pine Street. They are open to all and participants from surrounding communities are most welcome. Please call the library at 866-5060 for questions or information about borrowing the books.
