Read Saul Bellow’s Pulitzer Prize winning novel with the Vintage Reads Book Club

Enjoy reading classic books? Looking for a book discussion group to join?

The Vintage Reads Book Club reads and discuss novels from the 20th century and earlier, focusing on novels and authors that have stood the test of time. Some of the classics read are popular while others are more unconventional and unfamiliar.

The next meeting is Thursday, September 14, 2017 at 7 p.m. at the Manomet Branch Library, 12 Strand Avenue, with a discussion of “Humboldt’s Gift” by Saul Bellow. In Bellow’s Pulitzer Prize winning novel, Charlie Citrine, an author in some unfortunate circumstances, receives an unexpected legacy from his deceased friend and great poet Von Humboldt Dleisher.

Copies of the book are available to check out at the Manomet Branch. The program is free and requires no registration. For more information about this event, contact the Manomet Branch Librarian at (508) 830-4185, email to or visit the library’s web site,, for a complete list of events.
