Book Discussion: “The Woman Warrior” by Maxine Hong Kingston

September 18 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

This memoir, which blends autobiography and folktale, dips back and forth in time between the past of Kingston’s ancestors in pre-Mao China, to her growing up Chinese-American in modern-day California, to the fantasy of an imagined life as a female avenger.

Harpswell Author Mark Guerin Book Signing

October 15 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

“You Can See More From Up Here” is a coming-of-age tale about the illusion of privilege and the power of the past to inform and possibly heal the present.  The novel should appeal to readers of Elizabeth Strout’s “My Name is Lucy Barton” with its rural Illinois settings and family strife or the rural, coming-of-age story in Delia Owen’s “Where the Crawdads Sing.” In 2004, when middle-aged Walker Maguire is called to the deathbed of his estranged father, his thoughts return to…
