Book Discussion of MAYFLOWER November 26, 2013 6pm:
The Book Nook invites all readers to join our lively non-fiction book club for a Thanksgiving holiday appropriate book, Nathaniel Philbrick’s MAYFLOWER.
In MAYFLOWER, Philbrick casts his spell once again, giving us a fresh and extraordinarily vivid account of our most sacred national myth: the voyage of the Mayflower and the settlement of Plymouth Colony. From the Mayflower’s arduous Atlantic crossing to the eruption of King Philip’s War between colonists and natives decades later, Philbrick reveals in this electrifying history of the Pilgrims a fifty-five-year epic, at once tragic and heroic, that still resonates with us today.
Janet Maslin in the New York Times describes the book as “a judicious, fascinating work of revisionist history. “Mayflower” is a surprise-filled account of what are supposed to be some of the best-known events in this country’s past but are instead an occasion for collective amnesia. As Mr. Philbrick points out, the national memory tends to skip from the first Thanksgiving to the Shot Heard ‘Round the World without a clue about the 150 years in between.”
Copies of MAYFLOWER are available at The Book Nook at a 15% discount.
The round-table discussion will start at 6 pm on Tuesday November 26. There will be snacks.
All are welcome to join the discussion. Please RSVP at 802-228-3238 or send email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
