East Grand Dames book group’s 18th season

9 years ago

Gardens are taking off now that hot summer weather has arrived. This means summer folk have returned to camps and cottages around the lakes to join with the hardier year-round residents to share in the love of reading.
The first two session of the East Grand Dames Book Group will be held in Forest City on July 24 and July 31. The last two will take place in Orient on Aug. 7 and Aug. 14.
The three books for 2014 all have regional authors and themes. On July 24, Cathie Pelletier’s latest novel about the eccentric residents of Mattagash, “The One Way Bridge,” is the choice. July 31 finds the group discussing the memoir, “The Song of Rita Joe — Autobiography of a Mi’kmaw Poet,” “Orphan Train,” a novel by former Bangor resident, Christine Baker Kline, based on research about the actual orphan trains, will be reviewed. At the final meeting on Aug. 14, the three books for 2015 will be selected.
Meetings begin at 10 a.m. (Eastern Standard) and the discussions are followed by light refreshments and an opportunity to get to know readers from around the Chiputneticook region. All are welcome. For information, please call (207) 448-2928.
