Book Discussion

Wednesday, March 10, 6:30pm
Book Discussion via Zoom. Anyone is welcome to participate. We will be discussing Mill Town: Reckoning with What Remains by Kerri Arsenault. Arsenault grew up in the rural working class town of Mexico, Maine. For over 100 years the community orbited around a paper mill that employs most townspeople, including three generations of Arsenault’s own family. Years after she moved away, Arsenault realized the price she paid for that seemingly secure childhood. The mill, while providing livelihoods for nearly everyone, also contributed to the destruction of the environment and the decline of the town’s economic, moral, and emotional health in a slow-moving catastrophe, earning the area the nickname “Cancer Valley.”
