October Evening Book Group:

trans

The next Evening Book Group at Graves Library will be on Thursday evening, October 31 at 6:30 pm. ‘Transatlantic’ by Colum McCann will be discussed. Copies are available at the Library.

Newfoundland, 1919. Dublin, 1845. New York, 1998. These three iconic transatlantic crossings are connected by a series of remarkable women whose personal stories are caught up in the swells of history.

The most mature work yet from an incomparable storyteller, Transatlantic is a profound meditation on identity and history in a wide world that grows somehow smaller and more wondrous with each passing year.
