Author Monica Wood  had this to say about the book:  "His men and boys become so real, I feel as if I know what it might have been like to grow up surrounded by brothers.  Nichols is one of my favorite writers."

We are excited to launch the Maine Calling Book Club and hope that you will take part in our discussions of books you know and love, and books you've always wanted to read. It should be fun! The Maine Calling Book Club takes place the last Thursday of every month. Our host and panelists will discuss the month's selection, and we really want to hear from you.

Our book selection criteria? Each title should be available in paperback and it should spark a good conversation. Some books will have a Maine connection and some won't (we are hoping to cover some classics!). We’d love your participation, your input, and your suggestions about how to make the Book Club a success. Feel free to suggest future books we should consider. Send your comments and suggestions to mainecallingbookclub@mpbn.net. Let’s get reading!

Take part in the Maine Calling Book Club and join the conversation!
