Griffin Free Public Library – Auburn, NH

Evening Book Club

Copies of our next Adult Evening Book Club books have arrived! Stop by Griffin Free and pick up a copy of The Water is Wide: A Memoir by author Pat Conroy today.

water is wideThe island is nearly deserted, haunting, beautiful. Across a slip of ocean lies South Carolina. But for the handful of families on Yamacraw Island, America is a world away. For years the people here lived proudly from the sea, but now its waters are not safe. Waste from industry threatens their very existence unless, somehow, they can learn a new way. But they will learn nothing without someone to teach them, and their school has no teacher—until one man gives a year of his life to the island and its people. – publisher

Print copies are available now at Griffin Free. Ebooks are also available for free to Griffin Free Public Library card holders through hoopla.

The date of the next meeting is Wednesday, March 6 at 6:30 PM at Griffin Free Public Library. This group also has a Facebook page that you may join and is led by our volunteer Shannan Welsh.
