Sharing the ‘Mayflower’ story

The Pembroke Public Library is preparing for its third annual Pembroke Reads program, to be held in February and March. The initiative encourages townspeople to read a common book and attend special events related to it. This installment’s book is “Mayflower,” a 2006 nonfiction work by Nathaniel Philbrick that recounts the voyage of the Mayflower and the Pilgrims’ settlement in Massachusetts. Library director Deborah Wall said the book was chosen because it will fit well with Pembroke’s yearlong celebration of its 300th anniversary. Multiple copies of the book will become available for borrowing at the end of next month, and the library will be announcing its lineup of special events over the next several weeks. - John Laidler
