READING CIRCLE WILL DISCUSS MINK RIVER AT THE NEWPORT PUBLIC LIBRARY
The Newport Public Library’s Reading Circle will discuss this year’s Newport Reads selection, Mink River by Brian Doyle, on Tuesday, April 9 at noon. Set in a small fictional town on the Oregon coast, there are love affairs and almost-love-affairs, mystery and hilarity, bears and tears, brawls and boats, a garrulous logger and a silent doctor, rain and pain, Irish immigrants and Salish stories, mud and laughter.
Mink River is the tale of a town, written in a distinct and lyrical voice. Readers will close the book more than a little sad to leave the village of Neawanaka, on the wet coast of Oregon, beneath the hills that used to boast the biggest trees in the history of the world.
This program is free and open to the public. For more information, please call (541)265-2153 or check the library website, www.newportlibrary.org
