Let’s Talk series heads to Tenants Harbor

Jun 04, 2018

Tenants Harbor — Jackson Memorial Library has been selected by the Maine Humanities Council to offer Let's Talk About It, a free reading and discussion group with copies of books available through the library.

The Growing Up Between Cultures series will begin Thursday, June 28, at 3 p.m. at the library, 71 Main St./Route 1, and continue for a total of five sessions. Books to be read and discussed in this series include: “Don't Let's Go to the Dogs Tonight” by Alexandra Fuller, “The Names: A Memoir” by N. Scott Momaday, “Lost In Translation” by Eva Hoffman, “Anna In-Between” by Elizabeth Nunez and “No-No Boy” by John Okada.

"Exploring ideas and issues through literature has a unique and fun way of creating community," said Nicole Rancourt, director of Let's Talk About It. "We find that there is great interest among adults in getting together to discuss what they've read with others. Having a discussion leader like Kate VerPloeg who is both excited about the readings and skilled in facilitating can help to deepen this experience."

Books for the program are available on loan at the library; call 372-8961 to register and come in to pick up the first book of the series. The library is open Mondays from 3 to 6 p.m.; Tuesdays through Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Fridays from 1 to 5 p.m.; and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

This program is offered to Maine libraries through the Maine Humanities Council. For more information, visit mainehumanities.org or call 773-5051.
