The November book for the Book Discussion Group at the Manchester District Library O Pioneers! by Willa Cather. It’s the story of a family of Swedish immigrants in Nebraska farm country at the turn of the 20th century. The novel brings to life the loneliness of forging a living on the frontier of the Great Plains, where the sheer vastness of the landscape was so overwhelming settlers would be tempted to give up and leave the prairie. Despite this, the main character, Alexandra Bergson, is determined to make her family farm a success.
You can pick up a copy of this month’s book, as well as a list of the year’s selected books, at the Manchester District Library at 912 City Road. The book group’s next meeting will be Wednesday, October 19, at 7pm in the library. All are welcome.
