LOVELL – Charlotte Hobbs Memorial Library, in cooperation with the Greater Lovell Land Trust, will offer the “Let’s Talk About It” Book Group.

The library has been selected by the Maine Humanities Council to offer the free reading and discussion group, with copies of books available through the library. It is one of the many ways the land trust and the library are working together this summer.

The series, “Entering Nature: Contemporary Views of the Human Self in the Natural World,” will begin at 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 6, at the library and continue through Oct. 19.

Books to be read and discussed include: July 6, “The Tree” by John Fowles; Aug. 10, “The Lives of a Cell,” Lewis Thomas; Aug. 31, “Pilgrim at Tinker Creek,” Annie Dillard; Sept. 21, “Desert Solitaire,” Edward Abbey; Oct. 19, “Arctic Dreams,” Barry Lopez.

The discussions will be facilitated by Dr. Owen Grumbling, professor of environmental literature at the University of New England.

Books for the program are available for loan at the library. Call 925-3177 to register and visit the library to pick up the books. It is open on Monday and Thursday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The program is offered to Maine libraries through the Maine Humanities Council by a grant from the Belvedere Fund of the Maine Community Foundation.
