BROWNVILLE — The Brownville Free Public Library has been selected by the Maine Humanities Council to offer “Let’s Talk About It,” a free reading and discussion group with copies of books available through the library. This program is provided by the Maine Humanities Council’s Maine Center for the Book in cooperation with the Maine State Library.

The series “Detective Fiction in the 20th Century: A Notion of Evil” begins April 16 at the library and continues every two weeks for five sessions through June 11.

Books to be read and discussed in this series include “The Judge and His Hangman” by Friedrich Durrenmatt, “The Hound of the Baskervilles” by Arthur Conan, “The Maltese Falcon” by Dashiell Hammett, “The Godwulf Manuscript” by Robert Parker and “‘A’ is for Alibi” by Sue Grafton.

“Exploring ideas and issues through literature has a unique and way of creating community,” said Nicole Rancourt, director of Let’s Talk About It. “We find that there is great interest among adults getting together to discuss what they have read with others. Having a discussion leader who is both excited about the readings and skilled in facilitating can help to deepen this experience.”

Books for the program are available for loan at the library. Please call the library at 965-8334 to register and come in to pick up the first book of the series. The library is open Tuesdays and Thursdays from noon until 6 p.m.

This program is offered to Maine libraries through the Maine Humanities Council in partnership with the Maine State Library. For more information about “Let’s Talk About It” and the work of the Maine Humanities Council, see or call the office in Portland at 773-5051.
