A Look Back Book Group meets May 31

“A Look Back” book group will meet to discuss The Country of the Pointed Firs by Sarah Orne Jewett.

The Country of the Pointed Firs (1896), by Sarah Orne Jewett, tells a story spanning three months’ time in the life of a small coastal town called Dunnet Landing in nineteenth-century Maine. A lone female visitor arrives and finds lodging with the widowed Mrs. Todd, the town’s herbalist, who introduces the visitor to many ofthe town’s inhabitants. The visitor’s impressions of the people she meets start out simply, and then almost invisibly they crescendo into a deep, intense human portrait.Date:Friday May 31, 2019Time:12:00 PM  –  1:00 PMLocation:Local History Room
