Southwest Book Club Meets December 5
The Southwest Book Club will be meeting on Tuesday, December 5, 2006 at 7:00 p.m. in the meeting room at the Southwest Library to discuss the book, The Last Days of Dogtown by Anita Diamant.
Diamant writes a rich and captivating novel set in 1800's Cape Ann, Massachusetts of society's cast-offs trying to make a living in a harsh environment. Diamant admits it is fiction based lightly upon historical record which is spotty at best when it comes to the village of Dogtown, a hamlet once existing on the rocky coastline of Massachusetts Bay in the heart of Cape Ann. But Diamant, author of The Red Tent once again brings to life characters (including the dogs of Dogtown) living in a place and time history has all but forgotten.
The Southwest Book Club meets the 1st Tuesday of every month at 7:00 p.m. Anyone age 18 or older is welcome. For more information, please email mayer.sandy (at) ocls.info
