‘Come Spring’ for book discussion group

Jun 07, 2018

Thomaston — The Thomaston Intergenerational Book Club will discuss "Come Spring” by Ben Ames Williams Tuesday, June 19, at 2:30 p.m. in the main room of the library, located in the Thomaston Academy building on Main Street/Route 1.

This 1940 novel has proved to be an enduring classic. Mima is the main character, a young woman with a deep inner strength. The story starts with her and her family on a boat, heading to the Maine wilderness at the start of the American Revolution. The story develops the hardships and heartbreak of taming the New World and the deep, abiding love that keeps the families going. The families featured in “Come Spring” formed the history of nearby Union.

The Intergenerational Book Club comprise men and women of all ages who come together the third Tuesday of every month to share opinions and ideas about the book selection. All are welcome. Thomaston residents who would like to attend but need a ride should call the library at 354-2453 a week before the discussion.

The IGBC selection for July is “News of the World” by Paulette Jiles. Copies will be available at the Circulation Desk. For the complete 2018 list, visit thomaston.lib.me.us.
