Wednesday, June 30th at 2:30 p.m. – Fiction Book Discussion Join Denise Stankovics IN PERSON to discuss Goodbye Mr. Chips by James Hilton. The novella tells the story of a beloved school teacher, Mr Chipping, and his long tenure at Brookfield School, a fictional minor British boys’ public boarding school located in the fictional village of Brookfield in the Fenlands. Mr Chips, as the boys call him, is conventional in his beliefs and exercises firm discipline in the classroom. His views broaden, and his pedagogical manner loosens after he marries Katherine, a young woman whom he meets on holiday in the Lake District. Physical copies of the book are available at the Library or through curbside pickup. Please call 860-763-3501 if you’d like to register.
Thursday mornings at 11:00 am – Craft and Chat Join us for a low key time discussing topics of all kinds while working on individual crafting projects. Materials are not provided. Please bring whatever you are currently working on!
