‘Let’s Talk About It’ book club to convene in Thomaston Nov. 13
THOMASTON —Funded by a grant from the Maine Humanities Council and facilitated by author and mentor Lee Heffner, the “Let's Talk About It” book group will meet on Tuesday, November 13 at 11 a.m. We will continue the series, “Becoming American: Struggles, Successes, and Symbols," with The Way to Rainy Mountain by N. Scott Momaday.
"Long ago, the Kiowa Indians began a journey from the headwaters of the Yellowstone River in what is now western Montana to their present home in the southern Plains. In the course of that migration a cultural and psychological revolution occurred.” Notes the publisher. “The Way to Rainy Mountain recalls the journey of Tai-me, the sacred Sun Dance doll, and of Tai-me’s people in three unique voices: the legendary, the historical, and the contemporary. It is also the personal journey of N. Scott Momaday, who on pilgrimage to the grave of his Kiowa grandmother, traversed the same route taken by his forebears and in so doing confronted his Kiowa heritage. It is an evocation of three things in particular: a landscape that is incomparable, a time that is gone forever, and the human spirit, which endures."
Everyone is welcome to join for one book or the whole series! Refreshments are served.
The final book in the series will be Dear America: Notes of an Undocumented Citizen by Jose Antonio Vargas. Copies are available to borrow at the library. For more information, please contact the library at (207) 354-2453.
