Mink River Book Discussion July 8, July 29 and August 19 3 to 4pm
Join us three Sunday afternoons (July 8, 29 and August 19), 3-4 pm at Lost Acres Vineyard for a glass of wine and a lively discussion of the novel "Mink River"
Bring your sweetie! Bring a friend! Bring a snack! You don’t even have to have read the book (but you’ll want to). Come for one session or all three!
“In a small fictional town on the Oregon coast there are love affairs and almost-love-affairs, mystery and hilarity, bears and tears, brawls and boats, a garrulous logger and a silent doctor, rain and pain, Irish immigrants and Salish stories, mud and laughter. There’s a Department of Public Works that gives haircuts and counts insects, a policeman addicted to Puccini, a philosophizing crow, beer and berries. An expedition is mounted, a crime committed, and there’s an unbelievably huge picnic on the football field. Babies are born. A car is cut in half with a saw. A river confesses what it’s thinking… It’s the tale of a town, written in a distinct and lyrical voice, and readers will close the book more than a little sad to leave the village of Neawanaka, on the wet coast of Oregon…”
That's from a review of Brian Doyle's debut novel, Mink River.
