Book Discussion: “Becoming American: Struggles, Successes, Symbols”

We will be ending this Maine Humanities program with Woman Warrior by Maxine Hong Kingston. Throughout the book, Kingston blends autobiography with old Chinese folktales. It is a complex portrayal of the 20th century experiences of Chinese-Americans living in the U.S. in the shadow of the Chinese Revolution.

On June 12 we will be reading and discussing Revolutionary by Alex Myers. Mr. Myers will be the guest speaker at our library’s annual meeting on Thursday June 22 at 7 pm. The library has 6 copies of the book in circulation and there are also more copies available through Minerva. In addition we have 10 copies for sale.
