forays into intimacy inevitably fail those he tried to love

Let’s Talk About It Book Club to discuss ‘The Master’

Event has passed

On Tuesday, May 11, the Let’s Talk About It Book Club from Thomaston Public Library will meet over Zoom, at 2 p.m., to continue their discussion of historical novels based on characters that have helped shape our culture with The Master by Colm Tóibín.
 
From the publisher:
 
“Captures the loneliness and hope of a master of psychological subtlety whose forays into intimacy inevitably fail those he tried to love.

"Beautiful and profoundly moving, The Master tells the story of Henry James, a man born into one of America’s first intellectual families who leaves his country in the late nineteenth century to live in Paris, Rome, Venice, and London among privileged artists and writers.”

The Let’s Talk About It Book Club was born of a Maine Humanities Council-sponsored discussion series at Thomaston Public Library several years ago and meets the second Tuesday of every month to read and discuss a set of five to six books grouped around a common theme.

The book for the June 8 meeting will be The Hours by Michael Cunningham, and will be the last book in the current series. 

Contact the Library at (207) 354-2453 or library@thomastonmaine.gov for more information, to be added to the email list, or for assistance requesting the next book through interlibrary loan.
