Book-to-Movie Discussions
Join us for a discussion on Anita Shreve’s The Pilot’s Wife
Monday, September 25 at 6:30 pm – book discussion
Thursday, September 28 at 6:30 pm – movie presentation
As a pilot’s wife, Kathryn has learned to expect both intense exhilaration and long periods alone—but nothing has prepared her for the late-night knock that lets her know her husband has died in a crash. As Kathryn struggles with her grief, she descends into a maelstrom of publicity stirred up by the modern hunger for the details of tragedy. Even before the plane is located in waters off the Irish coast, the relentless focus on her husband’s life begins to bring a bizarre personal mystery into focus. Could there be any truth to the increasingly disturbing rumors that he had a secret?

Located in Rum Brook Plaza, 249 Route 10 North
This project was generously funded by the Friends of Dunbar Free Library and the Eastman Charitable Foundation. Participants of Eastman’s Youth Conservation Corp built the structure.

Here’s the crew that built it! The DLFL is the one on the left, the other two are located at Brookside Park and on a trail in Eastman.

If you want to request something you DON’T find in our catalog, try searching the NH Union Public Access Catalog or NHU-PAC (link on the left). You can check to see if what you want is available anywhere in other NH libraries. Note that it WILL tell you about UNH, but it WON’T tell you what Dartmouth has. If you can’t find it, send us an  e-mail with the title, author if available, format (book, DVD, CD), publishing date if you know it. If you have the time, tell us how you heard about it. We’ll call you when it’s in or to tell you that we can’t get it for you, usually the former.
