Book groups highlight summer reading at GPL

Summer reading programs are in full swing at the Grafton Public Library, 35 Grafton Common, and will be continuing with these upcoming events, according to Sarah Banister.
Monday, June 27, 7:30 p.m. Reads Well with Others Book Group: Harmony, by Carolyn Parkhurst. An emotionally wrenching story of how a seemingly “normal” family could become desperate enough to leave everything behind and move to a “family camp” in New Hampshire—a life-changing experience that alters them forever.
Tuesday, June 28, 7:30 p.m. Featherhood: A Memoir of Two Fathers and a Magpie, by Charlie Gilmore. A wry, moving story of a young man who, as his estranged father is dying, saves a baby Magpie only to find that caring for the mischievous bird has, in fact, saved him.
