The recently formed Woods Hole Public Library “Forgotten Gems Book Group” will continue to meet at 4 PM on the first Wednesday of each month. This book group is open to all and will focus on titles that are no longer prominent, but still worthy of reading, having stood the test of time.
The group will be led by librarian Kellie Porter, who holds a master’s degree in literature and, naturally, loves to read. She also takes great pleasure in discussing books and hearing other people’s opinions about their shared reading.
The next meeting of the book group will be on November 4, Wednesday at 4 PM and will run approximately one hour. The book chosen for this discussion is “We Have Always Lived in the Castle” by Shirley Jackson which was first published in 1962, and has been printed several times since. Like many of her novels and short stories, the plot is a bit scary and surreal, perfect for the season. The Woods Hole Library already has copies on hand, so interested people should not hesitate to come in to get the book. The book is relatively short, so no one should be intimidated.
The books which will be discussed in the next few months are “Thousand Cranes” by Yasunari Kawabata, “Sula” by Toni Morrison, and “The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie” by Muriel Spark. For more information, call the Library at 508-548-8961.
