Join us for a lively discussion of the novel The Lobster Kings on February 8 at 1PM.  A selection for the 2015 Maine Readers, Choice Award longlist, The Lobster Kings is a mythical family saga steeped in the legends of the sea.  The Kings family has been fishing for lobster for 300 years and is descended from a famous painter who, family legend has it, was married to a mermaid.  Now, however, their waters are being invaded by the rough men who work at an overfished neighboring harbor and who dabble in boatloads of meth.  Cordelia, the oldest of the three King daughters, stands to take over the familly business if she can defend the Kings way of life.

In March, the group will be reading Ernie’s Ark by Monica Wood and will meet on March 7th at 1 p.m.
