LET'S TALK ABOUT IT SERIES

The Winterport 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. This program is provided by the Maine Humanities Council's Maine Center for the Book in cooperation with the Maine State Library.

The series, The Mirror of Maine: The Maine Community in Myth and Reality, begins May 15th 6 pm at the library in Winterport and continues for 5 sessions through September 11th. 

Books to be read and discussed in this series include: A Maine Hamlet by Lura Beam; Wildfire Loose by Joyce Butler; Salem's Lot by Stephen King; Twelve Journeys in Maine by Wesley McNair; and The Weir by Ruth Moore. A scholar provided by the Maine Humanities Council will facilitate the discussions.

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

Books are available for loan at the library. Please call the library at 223-5540 to register and come in to pick up the first book in the series. The library is open Tues 2-7, Wed 9-2, Thur 2-7, Fri 9-4 and Sat 9-12. 

This program is offered to Maine libraries through the Maine Humanities Council in partnership with the Maine State Library.
