THOMASTON — The Let's Talk About It book group, facilitated by author and mentor Lee Heffner, will meet Tuesday, July 9, at 11 a.m., at Thomaston Public Library to continue the series entitled "Where Am I? The Individual and the Community" with A Year of Wonders by Geraldine Brooks.
From the publisher:
"When an infected bolt of cloth carries plague from London to an isolated village, a housemaid named Anna Frith emerges as an unlikely heroine and healer. Through Anna's eyes we follow the story of the fateful year of 1666, as she and her fellow villagers confront the spread of disease and superstition. As death reaches into every household and villagers turn from prayers to murderous witch-hunting, Anna must find the strength to confront the disintegration of her community and the lure of illicit love. As she struggles to survive and grow, a year of catastrophe becomes instead annus mirabilis, a 'year of wonders.'
"Inspired by the true story of Eyam, a village in the rugged hill country of England, Year of Wonders is a richly detailed evocation of a singular moment in history.”
These discussions are always thought-provoking and lively, according to the Library. Anyone is welcome to join for one book or the whole series.
Light refreshments are served.
Next month on August 13, we will discuss Doing Time: 25 Years of Prison Writing, edited by Bell Gale Chevigny. Copies are available to borrow at the library.
