Vail library discusses ‘The Places in Between’

VAIL, Colorado “-The Vail Public Library’s book discussion group will meet for the second time Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. in the community room of the library in Vail, Colorado. The book to be discussed is Rory Stewart’s novel, “The Places in Between.” Stewart walked across Afghanistan in 2002 and this book is his first-hand account of the journey that took him through a country in turmoil. He describes the complex situation that he saw there and meeting Afghans involved in all walks of life.

“Many folks turned out for our first book discussion in February and some lively discussion about the book ‘The White Tiger,’ which was last month’s choice,” said Lori A. Barnes, town librarian. “It is clear that our community desires this sort of event and enjoys intelligent discussion. We have some well-read community members and it is a privilege to hear their opinions. This month we will also determine which books the group would like to read in the months to come.”

The group will continue to meet on the second Wednesday of every month. In April, the book to be discussed is “The Bostonians,” a classic by Henry James.

Copies of both books, “The Places in Between” and “The Bostonians” are available through the Vail Public Library, as well as for purchase through the Bookworm of Edwards. The event is free. For more information, call the Vail Public Library 970-479-2187.
