BUCKFIELD — The Buckfield Literary Club, founded in 1895, held its last formal meeting of the season at a member’s home in Sumner on May 15.

The discussion centered on Helen Hamlin’s book, “Nine Mile Bridge,” a story of Hamlin’s experiences living in the Allagash in the early ’40s where she was a school teacher and finally married a forest ranger. Churchill Depot, a lonely outpost on the Allagash, is where most of the descriptions of the Maine north woods takes place.

The Literary Club, one of the oldest clubs in Buckfield, reads and discusses at least four books a year and boast a membership of 16, many of whom are retired teachers.

The final meeting of the club will be mystery lunch and ride in June.
