SOUTHWEST HARBOR — The Southwest Harbor Public Library book club meets at the Great Harbor Condominiums from 6-7:30 p.m. each month.
The group meets in a private area in the community dining room with lots of parking, no stairs, a restroom nearby and a kitchen to prepare food. The club reads many different genres, which the group chooses together.
The philosophy of the group is to make it an enjoyable evening. The meetings are fairly laid back, and the discussions are always interesting. Every member is encouraged to voice their ideas freely with no one person dominating the conversation; all comments and thoughts are welcome. And, of course, keeping laughter in the mix always makes for a better evening.
The next book on the group’s list is “Elephant Company” by Vicki Constantine Croke. This is the true story of James Howard “Billy” Williams, whose uncanny rapport with elephants transformed him into a charismatic World War II hero.
