Intergenerational Book Club at Thomaston Public Library

THOMASTON — On Tuesday, September 17 at 2:30 p.m., the Thomaston Intergenerational Book Club will discuss Anything is Possible by Elizabeth Strout

From the publisher:

"Recalling Olive Kitteridge in its richness, structure, and complexity, Anything Is Possible explores the whole range of human emotion through the intimate dramas of people struggling to understand themselves and others.

"Here are two sisters: One trades self-respect for a wealthy husband while the other finds in the pages of a book a kindred spirit who changes her life. The janitor at the local school has his faith tested in an encounter with an isolated man he has come to help; a grown daughter longs for mother love even as she comes to accept her mother’s happiness in a foreign country; and the adult Lucy Barton (the heroine of My Name Is Lucy Barton, the author’s celebrated New York Times bestseller) returns to visit her siblings after seventeen years of absence.

The story is "reverberating with the deep bonds of family, and the hope that comes with reconciliation.”

 

On the third Tuesday of every month, the Intergenerational Book Club, a group of men and women of all ages, comes together at the Thomaston Public 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 (207) 354-2453 a week before the discussion date.

In October, the group will discuss Educated by Tara Westover. Copies will be available to borrow at the library and through interlibrary loan. Please make sure to let the library know if you would like to request a copy through interlibrary loan - it can take a week or more for a book to arrive.

For more information, contact the library at (207) 354-2453.
