Book Talk, Community Read both set in West

FALLBROOK — The next Book Talk will be held Thursday, March 12, and feature “The Whistling Season” by Ivan Doig.

Doig continues his exploration of small-town, early-20th century life in the American West in this book. Three brothers and their widowed father respond to an ad in the newspaper for a housekeeper who “can’t cook but doesn’t bite.”

The discussion will be led by Carrie Repking.

Book Talk, sponsored by Friends of the Fallbrook Library, meets the second Thursday of the month (September through June) from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m. at the FPUD community room. The discussions are open to the public; no reservations are required.

“Men to Match My Mountains” by Irving Stone is the selection for the Fallbrook Community Read 2009 sponsored by Friends of the Fallbrook Library.

Stone’s historical narrative, published in 1956, is the story of the opening of the far West during the period 1840-1900 as told through the lives of the people who journeyed to this wilderness.

The Community Read is held each April and features a variety of coordinated events using the central theme of the book selected for reading during this period, including a Western art exhibit at the Fallbrook Art Center and a reception at the Fallbrook Historical Society.

This year it culminates on April 24 to coincide with the Friends of the Fallbrook Library annual meeting of its membership.
