THIRD THURSDAY BOOK DISCUSSION - Books for the February meeting of the Hampstead Public Library’s Third Thursday Afternoon Book Group are now available for check out. Participants will be discussing “The Housekeeper and the Professor” by Yoko Ogawa. An astute young Housekeeper, with a 10-year-old son, is hired to care for a Professor who has a peculiar problem. Ever since a traumatic head injury, he has lived with only eighty minutes of short-term memory. Every morning the Professor and the Housekeeper are introduced to each other anew, and a strange and lovely relationship blossoms between them. This enchanting novel is a story about what it means to live in the present, and about the curious equations that can create a family. The discussion will be on February 21 at 1:00 p.m. Newcomers are always welcome.
