Thomaston Public Library's Intergenerational Book Club will discuss “Breakfast with Buddha” by Roland Merullo Tuesday, Sept. 17, at 2:30 p.m. The library is located in the Thomaston Academy building at 60 Main St./Route 1.

Otto Ringling, a New York-based editor of food books and a religious skeptic, reluctantly goes on a road trip with Volya Rinpoche, a Siberian monk. “Breakfast with Buddha,” narrated in the first person by Ringling, describes his thoughts and beliefs; his conversations with Rinpoche; and his gradual acquisition of new perspectives on the world, as well as his life, as a result of Rinpoche's company.

On the third Tuesday of each month, the Intergenerational Book Club, a group of men and women of all ages, comes together to share their opinions and ideas about the book selection. Extra copies of the books are purchased by Friends of the Thomaston Public Library from the Annual Appeal funds; donations are appreciated. All are welcome to attend.
