Story Swap

April’s Story Swap will present a gallery of mysterious objects! You are invited to bring an item that is connected to some story from your life—a story that wouldn’t be obvious to a casual viewer of the object.  We’ll put out our “Whatsits” on tables, do a speculative gallery walk to look at them, and then listen to each other as we reveal the hidden stories.

What might you bring?  Anything portable!—or a photo of something not so easily transported.  A keepsake from a friend or relative whose story you can tell; a historical object or photo connected to some past event; a tool you have used for some interesting purpose; something you have made; an item that reminds you of someone or some past occurrence.

We all live among “storied” things!  They make a home feel like home. Notice what stories your surroundings can tell—and come to share them with the Hobbs Story Swap.

The Swap will meet on Friday, April 20, from noon till 1:30.  All are welcome, listeners as well as tellers. Come to share a 5-minute story, or just come to listen. Bring a brown-bag lunch if you wish; we’ll provide beverages.

Adult Book Discussion

Our 2018 Maine Humanities Council ‘Let’s Talk About It’ series is

“Family and Self: Readings In Twentieth Century Japanese Fiction”

In Japan, with its strong legacy of Confucian values and traditional emphasis of group over the individual, the family plays an exceptionally important role. This series explores five novels— two authored by women and three by men—each engaged with issues of both family and self in a changing Japan, but from widely differing perspectives. The first four books we discussed were Enchi Fumiko’s The Waiting Years , Tanizaki Junichirô's The Makioka Sisters, Dazai Osamu's The Setting Sun and Nobel laureate Ôe Kenzaburô's A Personal Matter.

This month we will be discussing .

• Good-bye Tsugumi by Yoshimoto Banana

All books in the series are available, free of charge, at our library.
