“Spoon River Anthology”, Community Read Discussion

spoonFrank BurroughsPlease join Franklin Burroughs on Thursday, March 17 from 1-2:30 P.M. at the Merrymeeting Arts Center, 9 Main Street, Bowdoinham. Franklin will lead a community discussion of the book, “Spoon River Anthology,” by Edgar Lee Masters.  Published 100 years ago, the book vividly describes the inhabitants of a fictional small town in the Midwest through a series of interconnected, first person epitaphs.

Multiple copies of the book are available for loan at the Bowdoinham Public Library. A reading guide for “Spoon River Anthology” is available at the Bowdoinham Town Office, the Library, and the Town Landing Restaurant.

Collaborating sponsors for this talk include the Bowdoinham Public Library, the Bowdoinham Advisory Committee on Aging, and the Bowdoinham Historical Society.
