Manomet Branch Library
Do you love reading classics? Have you been looking for a book discussion group to join? The Vintage Reads book group reads and discusses novels from the twentieth century and earlier, focusing on novels and authors that have stood the test of time. Some of the classics we read are popular while others are more unconventional and unfamiliar.
Our next meeting is Thursday, July 13, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. at the Manomet Branch Library, 12 Strand Avenue, featuring a discussion of Tales of the South Pacific by James Michener. Enter the exotic world of the South Pacific, meet the men and women caught up in the drama of a big war. The young Marine who falls madly in love with a beautiful Tonkinese girl. Nurse Nellie and her French planter, Emile De Becque. The soldiers, sailors, and nurses playing at war and waiting for love in a tropic paradise. Winner of the 1948 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction.
