Intergenerational Book Club at Thomaston Public Library
THOMASTON — On Tuesday, May 21, at 2:30 p.m., the Thomaston Intergenerational Book Club will discuss Still Life with Bread Crumbs by Anna Quindlen.
From the publisher:
"Still Life with Bread Crumbs begins with an imagined gunshot and ends with a new tin roof. Between the two is a wry and knowing portrait of Rebecca Winter, a photographer whose work made her an unlikely heroine for many women. Her career is now descendent, her bank balance shaky, and she has fled the city for the middle of nowhere. There she discovers, in a tree stand with a roofer named Jim Bates, that what she sees through a camera lens is not all there is to life.
On the third Tuesday of every month, the Intergenerational Book Club, a group of men and women of all ages, comes together at the library to share their opinions and ideas about the selected book.
All are welcome. If you live in Thomaston and would like to attend but need a ride, call the library at 354-2453 a week before the discussion date.
In June, the group will discuss A Piece of the World by Maine author Christina Baker Kline – the novel inspired by Andrew Wyeth's painting Christina's World and set in nearby Cushing.
Copies will be available to borrow at the library and through interlibrary loan.
