A monthly gathering (every 3rd Monday) hosted by Caroline Lederman, President, Amherst Neighbors.
Amherst Neighbors is pleased to announce that on Thursday, January 20th, from 4 – 5:30 PM, we will be sponsoring a book talk by Watertown author William H. Bonney, who will be discussing his newly published book, “Mark Twain in India”. Based on both the India section of Twain’s travelogue, “Following the Equator” and Bonney’s travels to India, Bonney has added photos from his trips to enhance the text and highlight Twain’s wit, humor, and perceptive eye. Bonney says that, “…even with the passage of time, even with the staggering changes in environment, technology, and social praxis, so much in India remains eternal.”
Come join us and experience "Mark Twain in India.”
The weather outside is getting colder and colder, so why not snuggle up with a great book and join the Amherst Neighbors book group on Thursday, January 27th from 4:00 – 5:30 PM to discuss the 2021 Pulitzer Prize award winning book for fiction, “The Night Watchman” by Native American writer Louise Erdrich.
The Night Watchman is an impressive literary feat. Written to preserve the memory of the US government’s attempt to close Indian reservations in the 1950s, this novel focuses on the struggles of a young Native American woman, Patrice (Pixie) as she struggles to find her lost sister, consider her romantic future and decide what to do with her deadbeat father.
This novel was written as a tribute to Erdrich’s father who served as the night watchman in a local factory.
