Evening Book Group

7:00 PM until 8:15 PM


Our selection this month is Mayflower: a Story of Courage, Community and War by Nathaniel Philbrick.

From the perilous ocean crossing to the shared bounty of the first Thanksgiving, the Pilgrim settlement of New England has become enshrined as our most sacred national myth. Yet, as bestselling author Nathaniel Philbrick reveals in his spellbinding new book, the true story of the Pilgrims is much more than the well-known tale of piety and sacrifice; it is a fifty-five-year epic that is at once tragic, heroic, exhilarating, and profound.                         Publisher Description

Copies are available at the main desk. Newcomers are always welcome.
