Book series continues with Faulkner

Jan 30, 2019

Thomaston — The Let's Talk About It book group, facilitated by author and mentor Lee Heffner, will meet Tuesday, Feb. 12, at 11 a.m. at Thomaston Public Library to continue The Civil War: Fiction series with “Absalom, Absalom!” by William Faulkner.

"Absalom, Absalom!” is considered Faulkner's most important and ambitious contribution to American literature. It is a story of the founding, flourishing and decay of the plantation of Sutpen's Hundred, and of the family that demonic Stephen Sutpen brought into the world a generation before the Civil War.

These discussions are always thought provoking and lively, and anyone is welcome to join for one book or the whole series. Refreshments are served. The next book in the series will be “Beloved” by Toni Morrison, to be discussed March 12. Copies will be available to borrow at the library.

For more information, call 354-2453. Thomaston Public Library is in the Thomaston Academy building, 60 Main St./Route 1. Parking and handicap accessible entrance are in the rear of the building.
