Event has passed

    THOMASTON — The Let's Talk About It book group, facilitated by author and mentor Lee Heffner, will meet Tuesday, Feb. 11, at 11 a.m., at Thomaston Public Library to wrap up the series "So Near & So Far: An Exploration of Cuban Literature" with Havana Red by Leonardo Padura.

    From the publisher:

    The first of the Havana quartet featuring Lieutenant Mario Conde, a tropical Marlowe. A body is found in a Havana park. A young transvestite dressed in a beautiful red evening dress, strangled. The victim had fled his family, finding refuge with Marqués, a forgotten man in his own country, an author and theatre director once condemned by his government for being a ‘heretical homosexual,’ living alone surrounded only by books, his house in ruins. In the baking heat of the Havana summer Conde moves through a Cuban reality where nothing is what it seems, a dark, fascinating world of men and women born in the Revolution who live without dreaming of exile and seek their identity in the midst of disaster.

    These discussions are always thought-provoking and lively, and anyone is welcome to join for one book or the whole series, according to the Let’s Talk About It, in a news release.

    Light refreshments are served.

    March’s book selection will be announced at February’s meeting. For more information, contact the library at (207) 354-2453 or at programs@thomaston.lib.me.us.
