The Passage of Time, the Meaning of Change

Perspectives by Five Maine Writers

September 13, 2019 - January 2, 2020 | 12:00pm - 2:00pm | Springvale Public Library

A Let's Talk About It series

Series: The Passage of Time, the Meaning of Change

While the American Dream portrays change as “a new beginning” and history as inevitable progress, this selection of Maine writers regards the passage of time more skeptically. For many of these writers, the vanished past has an idyllic quality and the future seems dark. Time brings changes that can have tragic consequences.

Dates: September 13, 2019; October 10, 2019; November 7, 2019; December 5, 2019; and January 2, 2020


Let’s Talk About It provides public libraries with free, scholar-led book discussions. Its many series enable libraries to bring community members together in conversation around a range of compelling themes that reflect community interests.
