  Keeping It Classy Book Club
The Manchester Public Library on 586 Main Street will have its November meeting of Keeping It Classy Book Club on Tuesday November 7, 2017 at 7 p.m. This month’s selection is The Turn of the Screw by Henry James. Please note the change in location, day of the week, and time. In The Turn of the Screw by Henry James, a very young woman is a governess for two weirdly beautiful, strangely distant, oddly silent children, Miles and Flora, at a forlorn estate, an estate haunted by a beckoning evil. Half-seen figures who glare from dark towers and dusty windows- silent, foul phantoms who, day by day, night by night, come closer, ever closer. With growing horror, the helpless governess realizes the fiendish creatures want the children, seeking to corrupt their bodies, possess their minds, own their souls... But worse- much worse- the governess discovers that Miles and Flora have no terror of the lurking evil. For they want the walking dead as badly as the dead want them. (From www.goodreads.com) No registration required for this free event. Copies of the book are available for check out at the main library. For more information, please call Jenn Bartlett at 860-643-2471 or visit the library website at http://library.townofmanchester.org
