THIRD THURSDAY BOOK DISCUSSION - At their December meeting, the Third Thursday Book Group of the Hampstead Public Library will be discussing “The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating” by Elisabeth Tova Bailey. The author shares an inspiring story of her uncommon encounter with a common woodland snail.
While an illness keeps her bedridden, Bailey watches a wild snail that has taken up residence on her nightstand. As a result, she discovers the solace and sense of wonder that this mysterious creature brings and comes to a greater understanding of her own confined place in the world. The book discussion is on December 20th at 1:00 p.m. Copies of the book are available at the library’s front desk, and newcomers are always welcome.
