Vintage Reads at Manomet

The Caine Mutiny by Herman Wouk
Thursday, June 8, 2017
7:00 p.m.
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, June 8, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. at the Manomet Branch Library, 12 Strand Avenue, featuring a discussion of The Caine Mutiny by Herman Wouk.  This boldly dramatic, brilliantly entertaining novel of life-and mutiny-on a Navy warship in the Pacific theater was immediately embraced, upon its original publication in 1951, as one of the first serious works of American fiction to grapple with the moral complexities and the human consequences of World War II. In the intervening decades, The Caine Mutiny has become a perennial favorite of readers young and old, has sold millions of copies throughout the world, and has achieved the status of a modern classic.

This program is free and requires no registration. For more information, contact the Manomet Branch Librarian at (508) 830-4185, or email [email protected]  The library is fully accessible; please let us know if you need special accommodations to attend.
