MORNING BOOK GROUP

March 12 @ 9:45 am - 10:45 am

The morning book group meets every second Thursday of the month at 9:45 am.  New members always welcome.  Copies of the book will be available upon request/reservation.  Please call the Library for further details (207) 967-2778.

For March 12, the group will be discussing  Working by Robert Caro.  

For the first time in his long career, Robert Caro gives us a glimpse into his own life and work in these evocatively written, personal pieces. He describes what it was like to interview the mighty Robert Moses; what it felt like to begin discovering the extent of the political power Moses wielded; the combination of discouragement and exhilaration he felt confronting the vast holdings of the Lyndon B. Johnson Library and Museum in Austin, Texas; his encounters with witnesses, including longtime residents wrenchingly displaced by the construction of Moses’ Cross-Bronx Expressway and Lady Bird Johnson acknowledging the beauty and influence of one of LBJ’s mistresses.
