Voices of the World’s Women is a new book discussion series being held at the Cook Memorial Library in Tamworth which features the works of women writers from around the world. Our goal is to introduce powerful voices from diverse cultures, and bring different women’s stories into our community.
Participants may read any or all of the ten titles from the list and join in discussions being held at the library. Louise Wrobleski, site director for UNH Summer Literacy Institutes, will facilitate the first discussion on Wednesday, January 6th at 7:00. The second discussion will take place on Wednesday, February 17th at 7:00 and be led by Joanne Vasconcellos, sociology teacher at Granite State College.
