The Book Club will discuss Mister Pip by Lloyd Jones on Wednesday, July 11, at 7 p.m. Jones tells the story of Tom Watts, the lone white man on a war-torn Pacific island, who volunteers as schoolmaster and begins reading Charles Dickens's Great Expectations to his students. The novel helps thirteen-year-old Matilda escape from the horrors of reality, even when the violence reaches her village.
The book discussion (for adults) is free and open to the public. No registration is necessary; just read the book and join us for an informal discussion. If you need a copy of the book, please inquire at the Information Desk. If you would like more information, please contact Barbara Clark-Greene at 860-441-6750.
