Of Love and War Book Group
There wasn't much Loving going on among combatants of World War II. Mostly men went away to war and left sweethearts an ocean apart. However great novelists have used their imaginations, and the incredible variety of factual events, to concoct some searing love stories. Come to the Bass Harbor Memorial Library in Bernard throughout the fall and winter to share your views about World War II and literary portrayals of love and war.
Bass Harbor Memorial Library trustee Art Paine has long been intrigued by the history of World War II and literature about love and sentimentality. He'll lead eight discussions about his favorite books on love and war, starting with a little-known personal diary by one of the three fugitives from Corregidor.
The first book, the diary, is a true-life adventure about an unknown hero who voyaged over three thousand miles through Japanese held waters and fell into a love affair with a Philipino princess who saved his life. The rest of Paine's favorites are fiction and include The Snow Goose by Paul Gallico, Tamar by Mal Peet, Assignment in Brittany by Helen MacInness, Atonement by Ian McEwen, The English Patient by Michael Ondaatje, The Breaking Wave by Nevil Shute, The War Journal of Major Rocky Gause, and Night Sky by Clare Francis.
The introductory meeting will be October 29th at 6:30 at the Bass Harbor Memorial Library in Bernard. Some books will be provided. Participants are welcome to take part in just a few, or all of the meetings. Please call the library for more information (207-244-3798).
